Saturday Sharing From the She-shed Volume 27

Hello, my friends on this warm Saturday morning!

I got up early this morning as I wanted to go out in the garden and work before it gets too hot.

I can’t believe it is the Fourth of July weekend already, I hope you have some fun things planned.

We are actually laying low since we were in Florida all last week. Our daughter and the girls will come over and we will go to the parade in our small town and then swim and BBQ at home.

Our Visit to Florida

We had such a great time visiting our son in Florida and we were able to help them put some things together in the backyard.

The big event was celebrating our youngest (the twins) 30th birthday and we had so much fun!

We built market light planters and a fire pit for our son’s backyard and made the most delicious Blueberry Moscow Mules to celebrate.

Thankfully he had put the stock tank pool in before we came. We even found some great furniture at a yard sale for $20 ( the black bench, chairs, and coffee table)

I have to admit, I love a good yard sale.

My husband came home early since they were filming the Dr. Pepper commercial at our house. Best I was not here, this stuff makes me a bit crazy.

They emptied the entire family room and brought in lots of football memorabilia.

Apparently they were pumping in fog for lighting and I can attest that there was popcorn everywhere when I returned.

If you watch college football, keep your eye out for the Dr. Pepper commercial.

What’s Happening at WM Design House

In other news, we returned to a very happy garden that was bursting in color.

I could not get my clippers out fast enough!

And boy did I cut a lot of flowers.

You do know, the more you cut, the more you will get. So it is important to trim and deadhead your flowers.
