    First blooms today -- and in two locations: Barn/South and front along sidewalk. Only 15" tall, very pretty burgundy.

    The ones in the front along the sidewalk have died. I forgot to water them but they weren't happy anyway. The soil there is really an old driveway and it's too shady. Oh well.

    The plants in the Barn Garden are okay. Not sure I'll try them again though.
