Ugh - I don't want to even talk about this garden.
Thinking about my beautiful passion flower vine totally eaten by caterpillers just makes me cry. Next year I will plant more of the pink salvia that is doing so well and some more guara that I like. Also, I want more of the stargazer lilies that were so pretty mid-summer. I have to do research to see which plants bloom later.

Go figure. Today was the first day in several weeks that I was motivated to head into the garden and of course it has been a very rainy morning. It did lead to some cool pictures of the elephant ears, however.
One of the prettier things in the garden now are some pink saliva that got from cuttings of larger plants in the front yard. This variety of saliva appears to do very well from both seed and cuttings. It also hold up in the hot weather. I can't say any of that about the blue salivas. They are growing scraggly and yellow. This pink variety will have a prominent place in next year's butterfly garden. Next to the salvia is a tiny camellia bud on a plant that I'm amazed I haven't killed yet.
