The puppies are good and no more digging….for now. As I walk around the yard, I can see it’s one of their favorite activities. The girls are fine too and eating well. The dried mud has been cleaned off of Slash as well as the bark collar. He must have really slung it.
I’m not so sure two of your Vinca’s are going to make it. I’ve taken all three down and set on the ground to help hold the water better, but they’re pretty stressed from the heat. I’m not sure why the third one looks so good and the other two are struggling. Some of my annuals are taking a huge hit too, specifically my impatiens (I have a huge shaded porch). If we keep having summers like this, our local Master Gardeners are going to have to come up with new heat tolerant plants for OK. Cactus is a good selection, I would think.
By the way, a box was delivered and is located in the office. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t miss it.
