Throwback Thursday at Carters Nursery, Pond and Patio

I LOVE #throwbackthursday! It’s a wonderful opportunity for meaningful memories. Like this one today.

My dad brought this Saucer Magnolia home many many years ago. It wound up in a special place in our Garden.

My dads friend George grew all kinds of trees up in McMinnville, TN. When dad saw these blooming, he knew he wanted one. He brought one home from a visit years ago for me to plant. We waited until the proper time and my Uncle Doug and me planted it here. It’s always a dependable bloomer and a harbinger of Spring.
This throwback is also special because we just recently lost Uncle Doug to Covid. Seeing this picture today, really gave me a special memory. Thanks Shannon 😊

Have a great #throwbackthursday ❤️

Sunday Reflections…

Everyone slept in this morning… Everyone but me 😊 I went out and walked around the gardens. I say it often, but it’s so true – Spring is coming! Bulbs and perennials are emerging and even blooming. Forsythias are blooming. My saucer Magnolia is fixing to burst open too. The maple 🍁 buds are swelling, the quince too. It’s a magical, time of the year to be a gardener. But, it’s not quite here yet… The waiting and anticipation of full on Spring is powerful! Can you say “Spring Fever” 🤒 I’m going back inside & cooking breakfast 🥞 That’ll have to do.

“Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle … a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl.  And the anticipation nurtures our dream.”
–  Barbara Winkler

These particular daffodils were planted by my grandma and always bring happy thoughts to me. They say “Spring is almost here”…

Have a Great Sunday! Spring is Coming!
