My Poor Jasmine

Dear Diary

I've got a serious problem at the O'Keefe household and I have no idea what to do about it. I think it's well known that I'm not very good at gardening, and in fact I only have jasmine bushes in my garden. I've managed to kill everything else, but through the years my jasmine has prevailed. Until recently. One of my 5 jasmine bushes died last year. It was the oldest and biggest one, and it really hurt my heart to have to see it die in front of my eyes. I remember the day I planted it like it was yesterday. Anyway, I still had the others right? Well now I'm worried about the health of three of the remaining four. For the last couple of months I've been watching these seemingly healthy, full, blooming plants shed their leaves like it's the height of summer and they're parched. But they're not. I've been watering once a week and it's not even summer! Is it possible they caught the same disease as the other one that died? Are the damn termites to blame? Is there anything I can do? Is there anyone I can call? Help! I really need help!!!!
