Sadly, someone decided that the two beautiful hollyhocks by the wall, just about to flower, were perhaps overkill, so they broke one stem, and the next day someone pulled up the other one and left its leaves strewn up and down the street... Mindless. I guess it's the risk you run with having flowers outside the garden wall. Never mind, the garden is still providing a haven for lots of bees, bugs, butterflies, frogs and birds, so it's all fine.
