I just wish I knew what could have caused the little guy's sudden death ... he never revived from coma ... I couldn't resuscitate ... soil was too wet to apply emergency sugar Rx.

I'll leave him be for a while more, before pulling up, to see if it was a *Vole-attack* rather than *wet-feet* (he was planted at the bottom of a slope).

Cousins SQ & Alice are in great shape, both less blooms but growing well.
