hollyhock and abelia

If you'd asked me this morning if I had an abelia shrub in my yard, I'd have said "no," but this morning I spotted one about 8 feet tall blooming in a hedgerow. I'm guessing the birds planted it, or maybe it has been growing as long as we've owned this house (17 years) and has just now risen enough to bloom above the shrubs surrounding it. Anyway, I pushed my way into the hedgerow far enough to pick a few blooming abelia twigs then combined them with this pretty, pink hollyhock blossom. The neck of this vase is too narrow to accommodate anything else.
