Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Koi | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

It’s a bit warmer in the Koi house so they get to start eating a little earlier than Koi who live in an outdoor Pond. I know you all are ready to get back to feeding them again, but it’s not quite warm enough yet… So I though you might enjoy a glimpse of what’s to come 😊

Spring is coming quick! Are you ready?

Who’s ready to enjoy a ‘Moment of Zen’ by their pond again? 😊 | Just Remember the Rule of 50 & be ready, because Spring is Coming!

Have a Zen filled Monday & a GREAT week!

Sunday Reflections…

This time of year is a challenge. Spring is almost here, but not quite… Everything is starting to emerge & bursting to bloom. It’s actually a magical time to watch everything come back to life. No other time of year holds the magic for me like the next couple months or so 😊

My saucer Magnolia – Magnolia X soulangeana is about to burst open! Many years, it blooms too early and gets bitten by late frost. Hopefully not this year 🤞🏻

As winter turns the corner
And spring is on the way
I wait with mounting happiness
To see what comes today.

I also love the cold days
With frost upon the sill
But something special happens
Once winter’s had its fill.

The crocus buds are swollen
The daffodils sprout so tall
Something special happens
As spring time makes its call.

So get ready for the changes
That happen none too soon
When spring time rounds that corner
And flowers start to bloom!

~ Marilyn Lott

Have a great Sunday!

Throwback Thursday | #Throwbackthursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

It’s #Throwbackthursday again & today I want  to mention one of my childhood hero’s – my Grandfather! He was a local butcher (Piggly Wiggly), a farmer & a very good gardener! I learned much of what I do today working with him in the gardens and in the field. He was also a decorated war hero, but he never talked about it much until I was older and even then I had to drag stories and info out of him. He was truly one of the “Greatest Generation”!

Patches, pins & medals from my Grandfathers military unit. His unit was instrumental in WW2 & saw action all over Europe. He was definitely part of the “Greatest Generation”!

Here’s one of the only pictures I have of him with his full unit. He was standing (A team) & this was right before they deployed to Europe.

There’s my grandad with his hand on his rifle strap. He was in the thick of things from D-Day & the Battle of the Bulge through till the end of the war. Then he came home and spent a peaceful life farming and cutting meat.

So here’s to F.D. Brinkley! ❤️ Love and miss ya’! #Throwbackthursday
