Friday Flower Bloggin'


My hydrangeas were beautiful this year even though they are supposed to be blue. I put lots of Holly Tone and Miracid on them but I guess it's not enough. They do have a blue tinge to them. My concrete driveway changed the Ph of the soil which is acidic here. They lime leaches out of the concrete when it rains or snows. I planted a blue one out in the yard away from the driveway so we'll see how it does next year.

It's hard to believe the summer's over. I didn't get to the beach once this year. Ted and I used to go every Saturday. I miss those days.

Last fall I moved my blue hydrangeas down to my lower back yard and added acid. I have since added the acid a couple of times and they have stayed blue all summer. So pretty.

My pink hydrangea has not as yet bloomed So will move that this fall to the lower garden. Too much sun I guess up front. Gardening is a trail and error project I guess.

All my re-blooming lilies did not survive. At least I tried.

We have been getting lots of rain so haven't had to do much watering thank goodness.

Enjoy your flowers.
