Seven on Saturday 5/6/23

Happy Saturday, Happy Derby Day, and Happy Coronation Day! It’s quite a busy day loaded with lots of celebrations and festivities.

I’m currently watching the coronation of King Charles III as I sit in my son’s living room in Knoxville waiting for our sweet Eden to wake up! We’ll head to Nashville later today to visit our other son.

We decided to squeeze in a visit to see our Tennessee kids this weekend instead of joining in with the all of the Kentucky Derby festivities back home in Louisville.

This week I started adding summer flowers to our front porch, and my favorites are our blue hydrangeas in these beautiful, classic white planter boxes.

Memorial Day patriotic pots with blue hydrangeas in white flower boxes, blue flower pots with white flowers, red geraniums in terracotta pots, and blue front door with patriotic wreath

I also joined 7 blogger friends in a Celebrate the Season Memorial Day blog hop and featured these potted hydrangeas in my post about patriotic flower pot ideas for the summer patriotic holidays. You can read all about it here.

Now, for all the lovely things I’ve discovered this week:

1. Gorgeous open cupboard ideas for your kitchen!

2. Create a pretty pressed flower vase!

3. The cutest DIY from recycled cans!

4. Decorate for Mom with a pretty sweet pea arrangement!

5. I love this serene and classic coastal style home.

6. An adorable idea for labeling your herb garden!

7. Beautiful DIY ideas for raised garden beds!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have an amazing weekend!!

Thank you for sharing my Sweet Pea post. You are a doll. I have not done my Saturday post for two weeks of being sick. Honestly, I can not seem to get well. I will get back to it next week, I hope.

    1. Thank you so much, Wendy! It starts to feel like summer when the porch is brightened with flowers! Saturday posts have been a bit of a struggle for me to do lately as well. It’s been a busy time for our family. I’m so sorry you’ve been ill. I hope this week is a much better week for you!
