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.

  1. Congratulations on the new baby. My daughter Jen had her baby June 25th, a little girl Lily. Your garden is beautiful. I had to check to see where you live to appreciate your tropical garden. Perhaps now you might have more time in the garden. Just maybe. Thankfully gardens will carry on without us.
