Brown thumb

Last spring we ripped out some old shrubs and planted four azalea bushes. They looked great all summer long, so we were super excited to see how they'd turn out this year, but that excitement has since waned... what's wrong???

According to the Azalea Society of America:
Leaves that turn brown, die and drop off during the summer usually indicate a problem with the azalea. The problem may be too little water, too much water, or too much fertilizer. If the azalea was recently planted, dig it up and check the rootball for moisture, and for the general state of the roots, which should be firm and crisp. Brown and mushy roots may indicate too much water. They may also indicate one of several different fungal infections known collectively as root rot.
Brian would like to blame these buggers:

I dunno... We've got way more brown leaves than we do missing leaves. I think we did something wrong! :(

That's a talent right there... killing the fake plants! Not quite a digital scrapbooker, yet. Just messing around on the computer. :)
