After feeding Spots I went up to the Circle Garden at the barn. The oenothera, blue eyed grass and Shrub were not receiving adequate water, even though the time is up to 45 minutes daily.  Shrub never looked so deathly.  I removed the dead branches with loppers, about a third of the plant, and added supplemental water, and redirected an irrigation feeder.  I will need to monitor over the next few days to nurse it back to health.  I never thought that it needed irrigating before.

The Australian fuchsia has begun to bloom in the Large Box Garden, with its delicate pale pink flowers. The California fuchsia in the container has bloomed for a few weeks now, with the pale persimmon blooms. Now if I could only get the gooseberry to produce fuchsia flowers.
