It FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!! Whoo hoo! Time to head on over to Tootsie place because it is Fertilizer Friday! Click on the photo above and it will take you over to Tootsie's place and you can sign up there to flaunt your flowers. Before I flaunt my flowers, lets test the soil first. The Hunter has a soil tester, which is great. Everyone should have one. I went out yesterday to check the pH of the soil around ALL of my hydrangeas....I clearly knew what it was going to say since ALL of my hydrangeas are blue.....which means the soil has high alkalinity. Everyone I tested was between a 6-7 all 10 of them. I am going to check other parts of the garden later...just curiousHere is the package it come in One of the hydrangeas I tested, sorry it doesn't have any blooms....I cut them and used them for arrangements :) what else are you supposed to do with flowers!
Now let's flaunt some flowers....or weeds! My flowers beds are in DESPERATE need of weeding! All this rain we have gotten in the past 2 weeks really made the weeds shoot up. All of the following photos with the exception of the Dinner Plate Dahlia, were taken in the front yard this morning. We will do the back yard another Friday

I am leaving tomorrow to go to the BEACH!!!! For a whole week! I am so excited. I am going to Gulf Shores with my family. I am not sure if I will have Internet access or not, so I may or may not be blogging....I don't know if I can make it an entire week without blogging! I will take tons of photos and have lots of great post in store for ya'll. Before I leave tomorrow though...I MUST pull those weeds....they are driving me nuts, and I can't stand the thought of waiting a whole week to pull them! Maybe I will have internet access, but if not....I will miss ya'll, and reading about what ya'll are up to.
Here is where I will be http://www.gulfshores.com/ if you want to come visit :)
