On record keeping, part 2
My lack of garden note-taking sometimes rankles. These are some of the hollyhocks that are blooming now. I planted them from seed LAST year, and it is this year that they bloom: they're true biennials. Did I remember that they are doubles? NO. I saw the first one bloom and I kind of cringed, "doubles, drat." Then the second flower came out and you know what? They're rather pretty. And when they fall, it's like a milliner's store-worth of Easter bonnets on the ground. Not bad.
