Look at the beautiful Phlox photographed on July 3 in my GEORGIA GARDENS.
Same spot today. Sigh, they are no longer with us.
Just behind the Phlox, you will see some of the St John's Wart looking sad.
Newly planted Angel Trumpet has lost most of its leaves.
A few feet to the right is another Angel Trumpet which is yellowing.
This photo also snapped on July 3 shows Vinca happily creeping along in the vicinity.
Today, the Creeping Vinca is loosing its leaves.
Nicotiana, no more.
Periwinkle is yellowing and looking mighty sad.
Dusty Miller, dying a slow death while Ivy, Iris, Lily and Weeds thrive.
Mediterranean White Heather is not looking too well.
Creeping Phlox is not happy.
Schizophragma Moonlight is starting to yellow.
The above photo of Butterfly Bushes was snapped on June 24.
Today, the same Butterfly Bushes that I fear are totally Dead while Elephant Ear and Forsythia flourish nearby.
Yellow, Pink, White and Purple all gone. I shall leave these in place just in case a root remains alive.
Red Twig Dogwood not looking good as the weeds enjoy moisture.
Leaves dying and falling to the ground.
On the way to the Mower Shed, the Red Rider sank into the soggy grounds and became stuck for a day. I know better then to plant things in the path of water run-off. When you have more drought conditions then rain, well, I seem to forget what can happen when plants stand in water too long. The Rains have been happy to the grass, evergreens, elephant ears and other things while I have had much PLANT LOSS, In the Garden...
