Ive had a small victory this week. Blooming in my garden for the first time is the infamous black hollyhock, Alcea Rosea var Nigra. Also known as The Black Knight. My excitement stems from having sown seeds for this variety twice before, with only terrible germination rates followed by snail attack as my reward.
Now I am victorious!

In other news, I may be absent tommorrow due to an engagement tonight. Sadly not one I can take a camera to, doesnt that suck?
