Saturday Sharing from the She-shed Volume 21

Welcome to Saturday’s sharing from the She Shed. I know I am a little late today, but we had a busy morning around here.

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

The weather has been so lovely, and I have spent a lot of time in the gardens. I ate my first snap pea right off the vine today! It was delicious.

So many flowers are now in full bloom, and I am amazed by their beauty. Do you ever take a moment to admire these wonders in the garden ? It’s quite an experience wandering through the yard marveling at the perfect creation of the flowers. With hundreds of petals in a single bloom, their magnificence and perfection amaze me every day.

Today was our granddaughter’s dance recital, and she sure did an amazing job.

Madison, who happens to be our first granddaughter, is eight years old and is growing up so quickly that it brings a tear to my eye. If only time would slow down for just a moment…


Gardening Tip

    • Watering your plants in the early morning is a smart move to conserve large amounts of water and prevent excessive evaporation. In addition, allowing the foliage to dry out before the evening is essential in preventing fungal and bacterial diseases from developing. With the plants absorbing water most efficiently during the day, watering them in the morning encourages more water absorption by the roots, decreasing water loss into the soil. Save water and keep your plants healthy by adopting an early morning watering routine.

    What Happened This Past Week

    I shared a post with over 40 different succulent designs I have created over the years. You will love all of the unusual containers I used for these arrangements.

Starting with the invitaiton, place mats, name cards, napkin rings, a silverware holder and the perfect party planning list. I should be ready to upload it this coming week.

    With that being said, I am all about the blue and white this week.
