Some more garden pictures

Well, it's hot, and I have a new baby, born July 20th, so I haven't had much gardening time, but my elephant ear is getting huge, so I thought I'd share some pictures. My annuals were kinda hit or miss. Narrow leaf zinnias did great, no surprise. Red salvia took off after a slow start and has been looking nice. The celosia did TERRIBLE. Never grew. Might have been hurt by the rabbits eating it, but it literally never grew past the little 3 inch pot size I bought it at. The bronze fennel also didn't do much, and all my basil barely grew as well. However, I didn't do much supplemental watering, maybe that was it? Which reminds me, the petunias melted in that bed. Guess its too sunny out there for them.
