Holiday Gifts For Your Koi | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE my Koi! Just as much as my other pets… I always get my Pups a special Christmas gift – A chew bone, a sweater, snacks, a new collar, etc…

Our dogs Love their presents and accessories! But what about your Koi? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I’ve been trying to think of a few things for my “Finned Friends”…

How about a scarf or onesie for the Koi?

I’m not sure this will work… But isn’t it cute 😊

A more practical gift would be food and snacks, but they can’t eat till spring…

They can’t eat it now, but “Spring is Coming”! You could stock up to be ready | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A new “Koi Cave” would be a great Christmas gift idea!

A custom stone Koi Cave or an easy to install Koi Castle is always a good choice! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Koi Castles are available at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

The ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT for your Koi (and YOU) would be a Bigger, Better KOI POND complete with Nightlights! Boom 💥

The Ultimate Christmas gift for your Koi (and YOU) would be a New, Custom Designed Pond with beautiful Waterfalls! Koi and Water Gardens go together like peas and carrots 🎅🏻 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I hope this helps! When I realized I was snubbing my Koi on Christmas, it hit me pretty hard… Never again! I’m getting something special this year for my Koi!

Merry Christmas! 🎅🏻🎄

PS:

The countdown continues.

A Gift With Love And Meaning ❤️

I bet a Lot of you have watched and enjoyed the movie Lonesome Dove 🕊 It is one of my favorites of all time. I really like old Gus, he’s one of the most colorful characters in the movie for sure 😊 When they hit the trail going north, he made sure his old Livery sign went with!

One of my favorite movies 🎥My wife made this sign as a gift for me recently. I LOVE it!

Cut to reality… My wife & I recently celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary. I took her on a “Antiquing, Junking, Pickin Trip” to celebrate, which I thought was pretty good 😎 But she topped me! She prepped, painted and lettered me a replica of Gus’s old sign for my “junk wall” (don’t ask)…

Did you ever wonder what that Latin phrase at the bottom meant?

uva uvam vivendo varia fit

It literally means – a grape changes color (ripens) when it sees another grape.

I wondered on that for quite a while. I think it means that when you see another person like you, in spirit or soul – that you make each other better (ripe)… I think that’s an Awesome metaphor for a great friendship or marriage. ❤️

I guess we are just a couple of old grapes 🍇 😊

 

Peace, Love, Gifts with meaning & Old Grapes 🍇
