Throwback Thursday Memories | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I opened up my Facebook this morning and this ”Facebook Memory” popped up from 5 years ago. I did Bill Ways show on Fridays for 15 years, so I think this qualifies as a Throwback 😊 But, what do you call it? A facebook comment? A note? A post? A tweet?? In any case here it is 👇🏻from 5/5/2017

“Good morning! Brrrr! A cool blast of cold air this morning! The old folks called this “Blackberry Winter”. I’m walking into the studio to sit in with Bill Way & Dan DeFilippo to talk ‘Outdoor Living’ & Spring Gardening! Call me with ALL your questions at 731-423-8101. OR text me your questions at 731-277-5155.

This pic was posted with the comment! I Love Waterfalls!

Have a great Cinco DeMayo! 🎉 🍺🎈

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

What a Beautiful spring morning! The birds are singing, the air is crisp and cool and the whole Landscape is in Bloom! 💐 When I saw these Iris blooming in the forefront, I knew where todays inspiration was coming from ❤️ My Grandmother planted these Iris many moons 🌙 ago.

These Iris have been here for over 50 years. They just get more beautiful as time goes by…

#Waterfallwednesday is always a great day! Old memories just make it even better 😊

1 Year Gone By 🙏🏻 Rest In Peace George Brinkley 🙏🏻
“God will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
and death shall be no more,
neither shall there be mourning, nor crying,
nor pain anymore,
for the former things have passed away.”
 – Revelation 21:4

I think about you every day Uncle Doug! You are Loved and missed by many. A year just flashed by without you in it… Been thinking about our old adventures together 😊 Much Love ❤️

Rest in Peace 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Throwback Thursday | #Throwbackthursday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Heres a beautiful #throwbackthursday memory from years ago. The really good part is, this is a repeating memory 😊 It comes back around every year and brings Spring with it…

We aren’t quite as far along this year but the foliage is emerging and soon – Blooms!

A living memory for Throwback Thursday! My great grandmother planted these many many years ago. Memory plants, legacy plants, just plain special plants! Today they are my #Throwbackthursday plants ❤️😊

Have a great day!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen

This was a place of Zen for me for many many years… Sitting or laying in the shade of this old Hickory tree. It was a host to mistletoe and a home for many squirrels 🐿 including a large number of flying squirrels… And in the Fall the golden color was so beautiful…

I took this picture laying down under this old tree. I was told by many that this was the tallest Hickory tree they had ever seen… It was over 200 years old.

This 200+ year old tree is gone now 😢 But I still remember it… And I can still find a quiet peaceful place of Zen sitting under a nice tree or in the woods. Try it today and enjoy some Fall beauty ❤️

Throwback Thursday | Hey, I Remember You | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Yesterday I blogged about Waterfall Wednesday. I showcased a Water Garden we built over 25 years ago. Well, that Segway’s me into today’s Throwback memory. Water Gardens are pretty special! They touch all your senses at once… They also touch your heart ❤️ You literally fall in love with your Pond Fish! Especially the Koi.

I literally hand delivered these fish to this new Pond around 27 years ago 😳 They have grown and matured and literally become beloved, named pets!

I don’t know if it’s nostalgia or just an impeccable memory, but I literally remember these fish! It’s funny how you remember things sometimes… But this one makes me smile 😊

Have a great #throwbackthursday evening!

Throwback Thursday

Jo and I always celebrate our wedding anniversary by taking a few days off. Looking back and looking forward is very important for a good relationship! I am sitting in a marina having lunch with Jo as I type this 😊 we are swapping old pictures and I wanted to make this one my #throwbackthursday picture.

I love this picture! ❤️ My dad is my best man, and 3 of my best friends are with me as groomsmen (ps: we are all still great friends! Family ❤️). My wife is so beautiful 🤩 as are all her brides maids.

Throwback Thursday is always a special day.

Have a great day!

Throwback Thursday | Memories | Looking Back | Looking Forward

#Throwbackthursday is always a look back at something special. A great job, or accomplishment, a great moment or a great memory. Today is no different 😊❤️

This one is 6 years to the day! Jacob, scout and I on a boat, watching the sunset 🌅 picking guitars. It don’t get much better than that…
Another great moment with my son. He got to meet and hang out a little bit with one of his musical idols – Paul Thorn. This was 3 years ago.

Looking back is Awesome! Especially with memories like this 😊 The road forward is exciting as well ❤️

Have a great Throwback Thursday!
