Nanton Hollyhocks

Hollyhocks are, next to sunflowers, the toughest and most resilient of plants. These were growing and blooming in a back alley in Nanton last summer.  They were up against a white brick wall growing in hard-packed sand and gravel.  I’m sure nobody watered them or gave them a moment of TLC, yet there they were. Such resourcefulness and optimism should be rewarded, so here’s a portrait to commemorate them!
