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…

What a beautiful Sunday morning! Cool and crisp! Warming today, but several days of rain ahead… Ahhh, but it’s March! Springtime is only inches away 😊 I can feel it!

Last weeks bud is this weeks early flower. Spring is almost here!

 

The First Of March 

“The sun is brilliant in the sky but its warmth does not reach my face.
The breeze stirs the trees but leaves my hair unmoved.
The cooling rain will feed the grass but will not slake my thirst.
It is all inches away but further from me than my dreams.”

~ M. Romeo LaFlamme

Have a Great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

This time of year is a challenge. Spring is almost here, but not quite… Everything is starting to emerge & bursting to bloom. It’s actually a magical time to watch everything come back to life. No other time of year holds the magic for me like the next couple months or so 😊

My saucer Magnolia – Magnolia X soulangeana is about to burst open! Many years, it blooms too early and gets bitten by late frost. Hopefully not this year 🤞🏻

As winter turns the corner
And spring is on the way
I wait with mounting happiness
To see what comes today.

I also love the cold days
With frost upon the sill
But something special happens
Once winter’s had its fill.

The crocus buds are swollen
The daffodils sprout so tall
Something special happens
As spring time makes its call.

So get ready for the changes
That happen none too soon
When spring time rounds that corner
And flowers start to bloom!

~ Marilyn Lott

Have a great Sunday!
