Sunday Reflections…

All I can say is ”What a beautiful morning”! I think every bird in the world is singing the song of Spring! Ive been up and out since early… Coffee ☕️ ✔️ Breakfast ✔️ Watering ✔️ … We have moved pottery a bit and potted some things up as well. Its mid-morning break time, so I thought I would write this little blog and fix some homemade Lemonade 🍋 Nothing tastes as good as a fresh glass of sweet lemonade on a spring morning.

I just Love Spring!

“It’s lemonade in a cardboard cup between the legs of a freshly tanned, sunglass wearing, brown eyed girl. It’s a white Jeep, blaring Enrique loud.

It’s the sweat beneath the dark curls. It’s the country song that brings tears to your eyes. It’s the lessons learned, the mistakes made. It’s the future ahead, bright and beautiful. It’s the laughter, memories. It’s the good things in life. 

It’s Spring.

~ Alixis Russell


I’ll see y’all in the house about dark:30…

Spring has Sprung! NOT SO FAST… Jack Frost Hasn’t Left For The Season Yet! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I’m the worst about planting to early before the “Last Frost Date”… Depending on who’s frost chart you use, our last frost date is somewhere between March 31st. and April 15th.

Frost Advisory TONIGHT AND TOMORROW MORNING!

I normally wait until April 15th before planting my tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, squash, melons, etc… But as a Nurseryman, I have to be ready with plants in stock! So we have moved plants back inside – tender growth shrubs, flowers, hanging baskets, flats of sedum, roses, and so much more! AND, I still have to get the rest of our houseplants back inside… UGH!!!

I hate to do it, but it beats all my plants getting frost-burnt or even worse – Dead… Gotta move em back in…

This isn’t a ”Late Frost” by any means… It has just been so warm that this is a Surprise! So I thought I would share the news, just in case you havent heard 🥶

📢 Spring is Here! Cover your Plants! 😊

“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.”

Sunday Reflections…

Good Morning! And, ”Happy Vernal Equinox! I’ve been hollering ’Spring is Coming’ since February, and finally – here we are 🌼 SPRING!

Belle has been patIently waiting for Spring and the Flowers that follow 😊

Yesterday we held our annual Spring Workshop and Customer Appreciation Day and so many people came out! We talked gardening, water gardening, Koi, and more. We ate some Wonderful Craft-made Pizzas 🍕 and saw some beautiful Art Displayed by a wonderful local artist – Matt Brown.

Featured Artist Matt Brown and two Lovely Ladies ❤️
Our local news station even came out and interviewed us and shot some video.

The Sun finally popped out late in the day and we saw the Full Moon after dark 🌝

We found Spring by the light of the 🌕

Now that Spring is here, its time to go to work!

“Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfill.

~ Robert Frost, A Prayer in Spring.

Y’all Have a Beautiful Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

Were you early to church this morning? Or, were you more like me and actually set your clocks ahead like we were supposed to, only to have to drag your butt out of bed 🛏 Springing forward ain’t easy!

I will gladly readjust my time for SPRING!

As I watch the snow melt this morning, Spring is in the air! And in a week, it will be official 😊 I am so ready for longer evenings, flowers, boating season and homegrown tomato’s 🍅.

“In spring when maple buds are red, 
We turn the clock an hour ahead; 
Which means, each April that arrives, 
We lose an hour out of our lives. 

Who cares? When autumn birds in flocks 
Fly southward, back we turn the clocks, 
And so regain a lovely thing 
That missing hour we lost in spring.”

~ Phyllis McGinley

Sunday Reflections…

Crazy weather… It was supposed to have rained all day, but it didn’t rain a drop 💧So in essence we got a free day! 😊 So nice and so warm, it turned out to be a wonderful Spring day! Walking around the Landscape, so much is blooming 🌼 Daffodils, Magnolias, Forsythia and the Maples, birch and willow are coming out like gangbusters – don’t forget the Privet 🤧 can you say Pollen…

My grandad and I built this old chicken house together and our hens laid many an egg. This old Magnolia that lives back here never disappoints ❤️ Always a harbinger of Spring.

Did I mention crazy weather? Rain tonight. Freezing temps tomorrow night, followed by more rain and a chance of snow by weeks end… “If you don’t like the weather”…

Have a wonderful evening! 1 week from today we will have a much longer evening 😊

“Come with me into the woods. Where spring is advancing, as it does, no matter what, not being singular or particular, but one of the forever gifts, and certainly visible.”

~ Mary Oliver
