A new grandchild picks up an abandoned watering can, setting into motion a new generation of learning about flowers and love. Who ever thought that the hardest part of parenting was kids growing up? I certainly never thought of it.  Yet here I am with my son flown from the nest, and my daughter heading to college.  And I struggle with my soon to be empty nest.   

​The Watering Can is a delightful children’s picture book about important connections.
Parents will enjoy a sentimental story, and children will learn about different flowers and the need to care for them. It is great for toddlers to kindergarten, Parents and of course young at heart Grandparents!

If you enjoy pretty illustrations, family, and finding out what really matters, then you will love this heartwarming tale!

This book touched my heart more than I expected. It’s a wonderful book to read with children and I bought it to read with my own granddaughter. She will love the beautiful illustrations, the information on flowers, and the adorable story. I loved it for the connection it made me feel, not only to my granddaughter and daughter, but also to my mother who passed away recently. There’s a beautiful quote at the end, and I just cried. Brilliant work. I love this book so much!

I absolutely LOVE my Living with the Land shadow box of my favorite scene in the ride. It is such a unique piece and pairs perfectly in my farmhouse themed living room. I like hiding subtle Disney items throughout my house and the shadow box fits the bill. Excellent craftsmanship and stunning painting! A must have for fans of the Land and Disney World.

My nephews called right away to thank me for these books. They recently got a new cousin and I cannot wait to visit them all again. Marnie also sent a self painted postcard thanking me for the purchase. Lovely touch! Thank you 🤍
