Season 5 Garden upsets!

Anthony Parker Salvia - GONE! I never even mentioned planting it, sorry. It sat around looking ugly-ish and raggedy except when it bloomed, which wasn't often enough to justify its existence in my garden anymore.

Caryopteris - GONE! They always looked half-dead no matter how much or how little water I gave them, so they got replaced by some Bearded Iris from the back bed that were grateful for more sunlight.

Buddleia Ellen's Blue - GONE, then BACK! It started dying branch-by-branch after a freakishly strong windstorm whipped it around like a rag doll one night, so I bought a new one this Spring and planted it where the old one was. It's kind of like when they replaced Darren on 'Bewitched', only this plant looks exactly like the old one. Except smaller. So really you'd never know unless you were paying close attention.
