For those who came out early on a 27 Degree Morning For A Pond Plunge – April Fools 😊

I was gonna take that plunge, but man was it cold out there 🥶 Instead, we snuggled up and got a few extra minutes of sleep 😴

My dogs said it was just TOO Cold this morning 🥶 They formed a defensive puppy pile that I couldn’t escape 😊 Maybe we will do a Plunge next year…

PS: Be nice on April Fools Day!

And PPS:Happy Birthday Uncle Doug! 😊

Peace ✌🏻

A Little “Hump Day Koi Fix” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Just a short video today of one of our display ponds. The koi are swimming and coming around to see what I’m up too 😊 And Scout makes a surprise drive by…

We are feeding daily now! The water temperature is finally right in all the Ponds at Carters Nursery, so daily feedings are on the schedule again 😊 Stop by and see what’s happening for a good dose of Spring! A “Nurseryfix” if you will 😉

Have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

The wind has calmed, the rain has ceased, Daylight Savings is in full effect & Spring is in the air! I got out first thing with the dogs and had some fun 😊 They are as excited as I am about this Spring like weather! Now, it’s time to fix breakfast for the family- Country Ham, biscuits & gravy coming up 🐖 🍳 Oh, Coffee! Lots of Coffee! 😊🌞

They did a little runnin 😊 Everybody is happy about Spring!

“March bustles in on windy feet
And sweeps my doorstep and my street.
She washes and cleans with pounding rains,
Scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
She shakes the grime from carpet green
Till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then, house in order, all neat as a pin,
She ushers gentle springtime in.”

Have a Great Sunday!
