And Then There Was ONE | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Our little pack of nursery kittens have all grown up healthy and happy and 3 of the 4 have found a ‘Forever Home’!

Here’s a picture of Sassy & the kittens. She had this small litter of kittens on Easter Sunday night. We kept them dry & warm & Sassy did the rest. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We have just one beautiful kitten left that needs a loving home 🙂 Luna is her name and she is a ‘Calico’.

Did you know that almost ALL calico cats are female? In fact, only 1 in 3,000 calico’s is born male! WOW! Why? The tri-color coat is linked to the X chromosome – it takes two X chromosomes to make the 3 colors…

Luna is the sweetest kitten of them all I think. If you want a healthy, happy, beautiful kitten, come by and look at Luna 🙂

Luna is the sweetest kitten of them all in my opinion. Come by and see her.

The ‘Easter Quadruplets’ have grown up and all but 1 has found a new home. We have been blessed to watch and be able to help these these little babies grow up. Thanks for the feedback and the great comments. AND thanks to everyone who stopped by to see these little beauties.

Have a HAPPY day!

Hump Day Koi Fix | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Lets look at a familiar looking Koi. No it’s NOT a Kohaku, but the best examples have a nice Kohaku pattern and very white skin. They are even judged in competition like a Kohaku… But this Koi is called ‘Kikusui’.

Although technically they are the Doitsu version of a Hariwake, a scaleless white koi with patterns of orange or yellow, they are commonly referred to as Kikusui. The bright, metallic colors of Hariwake are also present in Kikusui.

The only variation of this Koi is the Tancho Kikusui. They are a scaleless version of a Hariwake.

They are bred by using a Kohaku and a Platinum Ogon – their offspring will be Hariwake. Then you breed the Hariwake with a scaless carp/mirror carp and end up with the Kikusui.

There’s a little info on another variety of Koi! I LOVE talking about Koi and learning more about them. I hope you enjoy your Koi as much as I do mine!

Happy Pondering!

Sunday Reflections…

Sundays are for family! So we were sitting around sipping coffee, talking favorite Sunday songs (non religious)… I’m sure everyone has one or two they can think of 😊 We always pick 1 each when we are talking movies or music and we came up with these 3. I bet you can guess which one was mine 😊

Have a great Sunday with friends and family!

 

 

 

 

This one is just plain silly :0 But kinda funny too… Guess who picked this one… 😜

Friday From The Road | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Well the headline says it all… I’m out of pocket today and wasn’t able to do the weekly radio show, “The 180” today… 1st. time I have missed a show in quite a few years… But, TCB is my thang today! Thank ya very much 🙂

Elvis loved to “Take Care of Business”! As a mater of fact, if you worked for Elvis & the King asked you what was up – you better tell the man –  TCB Baby! Thats what I’m doing today! TCB!

Y’all have a BEAUTIFUL Friday and a WONDERFUL weekend!
