Sunday Reflection’s…

West Tn. weather is crazy, but still very seasonably predictable… The blackberries are in bloom once again & boom 💥 here comes a cold front that drops the temps overnight. Cool and crisp this morning and it feels SO GOOD 😊 I love me some ‘Blackberry Winter’…

Enjoy this day and this lovely little cold snap… knowing that soon, Summer Heat will be upon us! And, it will be time to pick blackberries once again 😊

“I see blackberry winter’s here
that very special time of year
when thorny vine’s small pure white bloom
announces colder weather’s doom.

It’s cold enough to wear long sleeves
to ward off spring’s last chilly breeze
yet warm enough up in the day
to show that cold won’t long hold sway.

The flower of this lowly berry
reminds that summer won’t long tarry.
This mini-season won’t last long
so don a coat and tag along.

We’ll both enjoy this evening’s nip
hands in each other’s loving grip
and gaze into each other’s eyes
as stars replace the clear blue skies.

As whippoorwill gives serenade
from ‘cross the pond in brushy glade
beneath a blanket we’ll start to plan
vacation on the ocean’s sand.

But in the back of cozy mind
all thoughts of winter left behind
tiny voices, soft and sweet
reminds that next comes summer heat.”

~ Stan Holiday

I’m off for an adventure… Y’all have fun 🤩

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Many evenings in the Spring and early Summer we never really make it in the house… We end up eating dinner out on the patio, feeding the fish and sitting on the swing and just enjoying the Waterfalls 🌊

Living the ‘Pond Life’ can be pretty sweet!

It’s the midpoint of the week! It’s all downhill from here! Enjoy this #Waterfallwednesday!

Sunday Reflection’s…

Everyone is “Born of Woman”, so everyone has a birth mother. Some of us are fortunate enough to have a Mom ❤️ A nurturer, giver, teacher… A person above & beyond all others in your life. I am blessed by the fact that I still have my Mom!

Happy Mothers Day to the Best Mom Ever!

We are having Lunch together today 💥

Proverbs 31:25: “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.”

Momma loves to laugh and have fun. I’ve always loved this picture of her and dad laughing and having fun.

I think this bible verse sums up a Mothers Love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

My wife is being celebrated today as well as my sister and many many great Moms that I know ❤️

“Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.”

~ William Makepeace Thackeray

Happy Mother’s Day to ALL the Moms out there! What in the world would we have done without you! ❤️

Sunday Reflection’s…

I’ve been up since early morning, doing a few things in my garden. Finally getting my tomatoes 🍅 squared away 👏🏻 It was a test… I almost always get my ‘maters’ out by April 15th… But this years weather had other plans 😊 Late frosts, wind and storms, unseasonably cool nights well into late April, early May drove my decision to wait. PS: I’m glad I did.

In fact, I know several old gardeners who always wait until Mothers Day to plant their tomatoes 🍅 and peppers 🌶 🫑 and almost always have show stopping gardens with HUGE yields. “It’s all about soil temperature and warming nights”… I’ve learned that this age old wisdom holds true almost every time. Everything revolves around proper timing…

Have you planted any tomatoes yet 🍅 Today is the day for me! I have good plants over a foot tall ready! This is my favorite variety, Cherokee Purple. It’s an old ‘heirloom’ variety that was passed down from American Indians over 100 years ago. Soooo Good! 😋 But don’t put all your eggs in 1 basket 🧺 Diversify by planting some hybrid varieties as well like Jet Star and Better Boy.

“Whoever makes a garden. Has never worked alone;
the rain has always found it, The sun has always known;
The wind has blown across it. And helped to scatter seeds;
Whoever makes a garden. Has all the help he needs.

Whoever makes a garden. Should surely not complain,
With someone like the sunshine.And someone like the rain
And someone like the breezes.To aid him in his toil
And someone like the Father. Who gave the garden soil.

Whoever makes a garden, has, oh, so many friends;
The glory of the morning, the dew when daylight ends.
For rain and wind and sunshine, and dew and fertile sod;
And he who makes a garden, works hand and hand with God.”

~ Douglas Malloch

Have a great Sunday!

PS: 1 week from today is Mothers Day! ❤️
