Some bloom, some die

I’m sad to report that my purple coneflower died pretty soon after I planted it.

It has been uncharacteristically hot and dry here the past couple weeks, so I think it became a victim of the weather. I was surprised it wasn’t sturdier, but live and learn. Mike went out and bought another one, so we’ll see how it fares.

The daisy has been struggling a bit, too, but as long as I water it every day it perks up and continues to bloom.

The dark pink roses finally bloomed, and they seem really happy. They’re just like the light pink ones — very delicate. The petals just fall off when you touch them.

Our new tomatoes seem to be faring well, and we have enjoyed many more salads from the greens. Overall, garden win!
