    It's been a long time since I've grown them, but if I remember correctly, hollyhocks are biennials. They grow a rosette of leaves the first year, and send up the flower stalk the second year. A free hollyhock late in the spring of this year probably won't bloom until next year, provided it survives the munchers and the cold.

    Cynthia we did get a really good downpour last night and the night before. The thunderstorms were thick enough last night to mess with the satellite signals for a bit. We are getting that wonderful monsoonal moisture up from Mexico. This weather makes me miss living in southern AZ even more. This was always my favorite time of year. Hot and just when it is getting to the point where you can't take it, you get a nice thunderstorm come through to cool everything down. Used to hang out on our back patio and watch the storms come rolling over the mountains. Beautiful sunset and sunrises this time of year too down there. One day... BTW, SCG we would NOT want to do the hike to the subway this time of year. Zion is having a lot of flash flooding because of the monsoons.
    DH and I are going to a Little River Band concert tonight in Wendover (small gambling town just over the Nevada border). Looking forwards to this small reward for finally finishing my degree. I almost feel lost now in the mornings since I don't have homework to do and all my weekend time is free. Wow, this is nice! [​IMG]
    DH and I are all set to head to MI for DS's wedding at the end of the month then a little over a month later we head to NY for DD's wedding. At DD's wedding we are also going to have a mini Sturtevant family reunion. Many of us have not seen each other since my aunt's wedding in 1978. It will be great to see my dad's side of the family again.

    Congratulations on completing your degree! Sit back and relax, you've earned your free time, but looks like you are still going to be plenty busy. I have cousins that I haven't seen in years and probably wouldn't recognize them on the street.

    wOW!!! posters/posts disappearing in front of my eyes! Till I saw this I thought someone had slipped a "funny" something in my morning coffee! [​IMG]

    BTW-I totally agree with you Diva. They have a tough job and are just working hard to keep this forum the kind of place that drew us all to join in the first place.
