We have some volunteer hollyhocks coming up against the adobe wall this year. We had hollyhocks in the area, but they hadn’t sprouted in the past 6 or 7 years. These must have come up from seeds that lay dormant for all those years. The kitties were hanging around in the garden with us tonight. Diné and Mama Manx really enjoy hanging around among the plants. Mermaid was full of blooms on Saturday, but when I checked on her this afternoon, she only had one bloom.
