Monday’s “Moment of Zen” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

This beautiful little Spicebush Swallowtail fluttered up and started probing around with his proboscis on this outdoor carpet by my front door. I guess he was getting moisture and/or minerals from  the recent rainfall. I thought this would make a nice Moment of Zen.

 

The Butterfly

Look, a butterfly. Did you make a wish?

You don’t wish on butterflies. 
You do so. Did you make one? 
Yes. 
It doesn’t count.

Happy Day! 😊

I Found the Cure For Winter Depression – It’s a New Drug Called ‘Nurseryfix’! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I have literally suffered from “Winter Depression” most of my life. It’s something many of us go through every Winter season… Short days, nothing much to do outside, cold and dreary for months on end… BUT, Spring arrives and slowly but surely, the Winter Blues turn into Spring Smiles 🙂

I have found a wonderful new treatment that helps to accelerate the transition from Winter blue to Spring happiness – It’s called ‘Nurseryfix’ (patent pending)….

Come by the nursery for a ‘Nurseryfix’ asap! It will cure what ails ya’! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Of course this is a joke – but not really… Getting out on a day like today and going to a local Garden Center or Botanic Garden and smelling the roses makes you feel fine! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the hummingbirds are swarming around the feeders and the whole world is in bloom!

Blooming Annuals, Perennials, Aquatic Plants, Hanging Baskets and so much more await you at Carters Nursery!

I’ve been out since before the sunrise and only came back in to write this blog… I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you enjoy this beautiful weekend in YOUR garden 🙂 That’s exactly what I’m going to do!

It’s time to feed the fish 🙂 Your welcome to come by and join me. Have a great weekend!

Happy Pondering!

To a Butterfly
I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! — not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

~ William Wordsworth
