Horizontal Hollyhocks

    My 8 foot (2.4m) hollyhocks, whose tips reached the edge of the roof are now horizontal, thanks to the heavy rain that fell over night.  Despite their new position, I am still amazed at them.  I didn’t even think hollyhocks would grow up here in the Robson Valley.
    I was also surprised that they did so well growing in the rather poor dry soil along the side of our house, but they have thrived.
    When it stops raining, I will try to tie them back up vertically, so their stems don’t break.
