New Years Eve is Here! 🎊🎉🎆🍾❤️

Here we are, standing at the crossroads of another year… So many choices to make, so much work to be done. So many blessings to count and so much more to look forward too! A wise lady told me that ’Every day above ground is a Blessing!’ ❤️

So many opportunities lay ahead! As for me, I took the road less traveled by years ago, and so far so good… Happy New Year!

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

~ Robert Frost

I hope we all have a wonderful evening closing out 2021! And here’s to a HUGE 2022! 💥🍾

“Should auld acquaintance be Forgot and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be Forgot and days of auld lang syne? For auld lang syne, my dear,for auld lang syne, We’ll take a cup of kindness yet,for auld lang syne.”

Throwback Thursday

2021 is off to an interesting start… But today is #Throwbackthursday! Here’s a small collage of highlights from 2020. LOTS of good things happened in 2020 as well as all the crazy stuff!

2020 was an interesting year! And a year of many 1st’s. A very wise man told me that you get what you focus on! So I try to focus on the good 😊

Throwback Thursday is on! Enjoy your day. This one won’t come again…

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

I love beautiful sunny days! Even cold ones like today. It’s January, but the days are getting longer… Spring is slowly getting closer by the day! If you get out in the garden and look 👀 you will see all kinds of emerging plants, buds swelling, aquatic plants showing growth on the edges of streams and in the pond. It sure makes me feel good! Today is the 1st Waterfall Wednesday of 2021! So I thought I would share a simple picture of what’s coming in the not to distant future…

I’m looking forward to the coming Spring! It won’t be long now! Spring is Coming!

A simple Waterfall and stream make such a wonderful sound! It feeds much more than the aquatic plants and birds that come to drink and bathe 😊

Have a great #waterfallwednesday! From here, it’s all downhill to the weekend!

Sunday Reflections…

All the holidays have gone by and tomorrow we go back to work and do it all over again… Many with a list of resolutions that will change their lives… Workout, save, loose weight, build, change, etc. and they work a little at it, but also, they wait for the ‘magic’ of the new year to happen. I’ve been sipping coffee thinking 🤔 about this for a little while this morning.

Fill these in ONLY if your willing to work HARD! Otherwise, save the paper…

I guess this thought is really about me and my struggles… But I hope it rings true to others as well. To have continued success and to grow, I Must keep showing up and doing great work! Which also means I MUST keep believing in and caring about and Loving what I do!
THAT is my 2021 Resolution! And the only one I need to focus on.

Happy New Year! 💥❤️🙏🏻

‘You’re waiting for something magical to happen in the New Year so that your dreams will come true! But the greatest and the most real magic is working and striving hard to achieve the goal!’

The Last Waterfall Wednesday Of 2020 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

New Year’s Day is only 2 days away… It’s almost time to say bye bye 👋🏻 to 2020! Ive been trying to find a picture of the perfect Waterfall to post for the last #waterfallwednesday of the year.

I couldn’t decide on just 1 picture… So, I made a collage of several images of beautiful Water Features. I hope everyone is ready to move into a new year! And, I hope that 2021 will be the best year ever!

Waterfalls are my business and my passion! So trying to pick one that’s my “favorite” is impossible. They are all so beautiful and unique. So I cheated 😊 and made a collage of many beautiful images…

Here’s to a New Year! And, here’s to Beautiful Waterfalls! 💥

2021 is Coming! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We are at the end of 2020! As the last few days count down, I find myself doing what I always do this time of the year… Planning! Getting ready for next season! I’m hopeful that the coming spring will bring a more normal season for us all! Last years entire event schedule was ruined by COVID-19… NO workshops, no pond tours, no seminars, nothing got to happen. So, I’m really excited and hopeful, that things are going to be much different in this new year!

Every year I sit down and plan events with a fresh new calendar. This new year will be no different! If you fail to plan, your planning to fail! I’m looking forward to a better 2021!

We also plan to eat our traditional New Years Meal! Hog Jowl, black eyed peas, cabbage, greens, cornbread & more! These old traditions must live on!

I LOVE our New Years tradition of eating dinner with the family. We always have fried Hog Jowl, Black Eyed Peas, Turnip Greens & Cornbread! Plus much more … I’m ready to Welcome in 2021!

In any case, 2021 Is Coming, ready or not… Be ready 😊
