Saturday Sharing from the She-Shed Volume 20

Welcome to Saturday’s sharing from the She Shed. I always aim to provide inspiration, creativity, and new ideas for your home and garden. In this weekly post, I share all the happenings at WM Design House and a bit of behind-the-scenes.

What’s Happening at WM Design House

It has been a few weeks since I have written my Saturday post. It has been one of those months for me. I started with a bad bug when we returned from visiting our son and family in Texas, and I have been sick three times since! I start to feel better, and it hits me again. Let’s hope the third times a charm and it does not come back to haunt me.

Our adorable grandson turned four months today. Hard to believe. The time sure flies by. We hope to visit for our son’s birthday next month and grab some baby cuddles from this little guy.

Last weekend, we had three of our granddaughters, and we took the younger two to get their ears pierced. A bit of drama, but it all ended well. A little ice cream stopped the tears and put a smile on everyone’s face.

Big sister had hers done a few years ago, so was such a great support to her sisters.

The Wildflowers Are In Bloom

Southern California blooms in the spring, displaying radiant green, yellow, orange, and purple hues across its picturesque hills.

Witnessing Mother Nature’s stunning beauty firsthand is truly a breathtaking experience. On our recent drive, we were surrounded by countless flowers, a true feast for the eyes.

Gardening Tips

1. Add a handful of Epsom salts to your ferns and roses, and water well. The plants love the magnesium.

2. Pinch back your dahlias after the first three layers of leaves have sprouted. This will create fuller plants that will bloom more.

3. Deadhead your flowers- remove all the dead blooms so the plants can put their energy towards new blooms.
