Re dux...

...hollyhocks.  A very good friend sent me this yesterday after reading my blog on hollyhocks.

"The story I have heard about hollyhocks is that before the days of indoor plumbing hollyhocks were usually planted next to outhouses. Thought you'd agree with that sentiment. The Seed Savers catalog refers to them as outhouse hollyhocks."  Natures own room deodorizer even when the room is the entire great outdoors.  Ain't life grand?  I also remember that hollyhocks had little impact on the odor of the outhouse on a very hot day in Iowa in August.
