Sunday Reflections…

Taking the time to smell the roses 🌹 and to watch the sunrises and sunsets is so important! It’s Labor Day weekend… The Summer seasons last big hurrah! Time to enter Fall… Does it seem like we should be here already? Wow! Summer has passed by like a sunset… 

Believe it or not, my dog loves watching the sunset with us. Maybe it’s because we are watching and paying attention to the setting sun ☀️ but he sure seems to love  it too ❤️

“It was sunsets that taught me that beauty sometimes only lasts for a couple of moments, and it was sunrises that showed me that all it takes is patience to experience it all over again.” — A.J. Lawless

Have a great Sunday!!

Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Sometimes my blog writes itself 😊 Here’s a great #throwbackthursday picture for ya’! 

This picture was taken right after we finished the initial installation around 10 years ago.


We built this Pondless Waterfall about 10 years ago. We went back to clean up and service it recently and installed a brand new Foot Bridge! 

The new bridge is built from treated lumber and has several coats of paint. It should be around for the long haul! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

The original bridge was cedar and lasted a good while. This new bridge is built from treated lumber and should last much longer than 10 years 🤞🏻

Dog days are pleasant when you have a place to cool off 😊
PS: Dogs LOVE Waterfalls!


Throwback Thursday is a special day indeed 😊

Y’all have a wonderful day!

Throwback Thursday

#Throwbackthursday is always a cool day! Focusing on something or someone from the past. I have been in my boxes of old photos yet again 😊 And found a few more pics of my Papaw. He was a really cool guy! He loved and excelled at hunting and fishing. He loved treasure hunting with his old metal detector! And he Loved his dog – Bandit!

Bandit was my Papaws favorite English Bulldog! He was from a pedigreed line of Champions & took Best of Show every time!

My aunt Mickie was from Orange County California. She brought a champion female from Cali home to my Papaw & Mimi to breed. Bandit was from one of those litters of pups. In fact, he was the runt of a litter & Papaw just fell in love with him. Most of Bandits brothers and sisters were purchased by Marine Corp officers and the like and moved far away… One of Bandits brothers went to my other Grandfather, his name was John Boy (a story for another day😊).

Heres to great memories! And great Papaws & Great Dogs! #Throwbackthursdsy

Have a Great day!

What a Lucky Dog | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

If you know me or my family, you know we LOVE animals. We have always kept pets and fostered animals in need . Through our business we have raised money for our local Humane society for 20+ years too. All this love has really shaped my son Jacob. He is always ready to help an animal in need and does it on his own. Yesterday he and his mom saw this beautiful puppy running through traffic at rush hour. She was scared to death and confused, literally trying to get people to stop their cars to help her. Well, Jo & Jacob did just that!

Jo & my son Jacob saved this beautiful puppy from being ran over in the street. With the help of the Jackson Animal Care Center, an anonymous angel, Facebook & a local Vet we were able to find her owner & get her safely back home to her family.

With the help of some great local resources (Jackson Animal Care Center, a Local Vet & Facebook) we were able to find her family and reunite them in just over 1 day! WOW! We found out that Paloma is her name, she is just over a year old and is a big old sweetheart 🙂 Sometimes things work out right! Thank Goodness!

Like I said, “What a Lucky Dog”!

 

Have a GREAT Weekend!
