Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃 🇺🇸

I’m having my last cup of coffee for the morning and its fixing to get busy… We are hosting the days festivities and there is a LOT to do 😊 I’ve been listening to and watching the rain fall this morning, thinking about all I have to be thankful for… It’s quite a list! 🙏🏻 At the top are all my family and friends that truly enrich my life ❤️ I have been blessed to be able to live and work with the people that are most important to me in my life. Many of them will be here at our house later today, that is a true blessing🙏🏻 When I say the prayer later today I must also remember our soldiers and sailors that couldn’t be home with family today! I am very thankful for them and their sacrifices as well 🙏🏻

Happy Thanksgiving! 🙏🏻🦃🇺🇸

We live in the greatest nation in the world!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Throwback Thursday | Jack-O-Lantern 🎃 Love

October is flying by 💨 Its just a few more days till Halloween… I was looking through some older images of Halloweens past and when I came across this one I knew it had to be todays #Throwbackthursday memory.

I remember this night! We spent the evening carving 🎃 baking pies and watching scary movies 👻 Sounds like a great plan for tonight!

I think we may do a repeat of this tonight!

Happy Halloween! And Happy Throwback Thursday!

1st Throwback Thursday of Fall! 🍁 | #Throwbackthursday 🍁

Well, we are into the 1st full day of Fall now & boy does it feel great! 46 degrees this morning! It really feels like we changed seasons 😊 The next big holiday around the corner is Halloween 🎃 which lead me right too this old throwback memory of Halloweens long ago…

This throwback pic is so old that its almost black&white…😂 Halloween Party circa 1972 I believe…

I may wear this same getup for this years Halloween! How can a guy go wrong as a cowboy?! Do you think you could wear your 6 guns and holsters to a school function nowadays? 🤔 Me thinks not… But let me tell you one thing for certain! That boy you see in that picture there, would have for sure! I guess cowboys had more sway back then… Lets bring back Cowboys! 🤠🇺🇸

Heres to the spirit of Fall! Bon fires🔥 Football 🏈 Beautiful color 🍁 and dont forget Halloween! 🎃

Have a great #throwbackthursday!

Throwback Thursday | Old Memories Of Things To Come | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Summer is still in glorious season, but when you run a business you have to stay ahead of the changes… Which are coming quickly. In fact, Fall is just around the corner. When I think of Fall, I think of several things, but Pumpkins 🎃 Maybe #1! This throwback pic from several years ago brings back nothing but good memories… And a peak into our not to distant future 😊

Do you enjoy Fall? Fall planting, cooler weather and Jack-O-Lanterns 🎃 are coming!

This picture of my son and I is repeated every Fall and I’m looking forward to it 😊

Y’all have a great #Throwbackthursday evening!

Throwback Thursday Love ❤️

Good morning! It’s #Throwbackthursday! I was looking through old photos of Halloween’s past and found this very special photo of Jacobs first best friend… his dog Tracker. Tracker was always a good sport and went along with any crazy 😜 dress up plan that Jacob and Jo came up with. She especially Loved Halloween 🎃 Probably all the treats and snacks that she got 😊 Dogs 🐶 are truly mans best friend!

Tracker was such a good girl 🐕 She loved dressing up and going out with us 😂 Here she is in one of her Halloween 🎃 costumes. I just love looking back on great memories! #throwbackthursday

Have a Great Throwback Thursday! And Happy Halloween 🎃 👻

Fall is Here! 🍁

Today is the “Official” 1st day of Fall. The Autumnal Equinox’! A very special day! The sun is right above the equator, and day and night are almost exactly equal in time 🕰 From here, the days get shorter and shorter as we slide towards the shortest day of the year… The Winter ❄️ Solstice, aka: The Longest Night 🌙 

Today the nighttime and daytime hours are equal. The days will get shorter and the nights longer all the way into the first day of Winter, aka: The Winter Solstice.

I remember when I was a kid, the big thing on the equinox’s was to stand an egg 🥚 on its head 🤔 I don’t know if that’s the only day you can accomplish this feat… But, I have done it on the equinox 🥚😊

Have YOU ever tried to balance an egg on the Spring or Fall equinox? It was a thing when I was a kid. I’m thinking it was around 3rd. Grade or so? I went home and worked for what seemed like hours, but finally got one to balance!
PS: science?

So, it’s time for Pansies, mums, violas, kale 🥬 Pumpkins 🎃 gourds, straw bales and corn stalks 🌾 Fire pits, cookouts and football 🏈 

Bring. It. On! Fall is Here! 💥🍁🍂🔥🎃 🏈  


Have a great day!

Happy Halloween! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Don’t eat too much candy tonight kids 🎃

“When the spooks have a midnight jamboree/They break it up with fiendish glee/The ghosts are bad but the one that’s cursed/Is the headless horseman; he’s the worst/That’s right, he’s a fright on Halloween night! When he goes a joggin’ ‘cross the land/Holding his noggin in his hand/Demons take one look and groan/And they hit the road to parts unknown/Beware, take care he rides alone!”

~ The Headless Horseman, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow.

Happy Halloween! 🎃

Happy Halloween!

The Daily Grind Affects Us All!

Back by popular demand… A day in the life of MIKE! 

They tell me that most of us get more conservative as we get older. It makes sense, we get married, have kids, we earn more $$ and have more to conserve! We also set up routines that we follow throughout our daily lives  – exercise, eating, checking email, etc.. So I got to wondering if everyone across all boundaries followed suit?

Check this out! – A day in the life of Mike…

Mike likes his morning brew! You wouldn’t believe how cranky he gets if he ain’t had his Java!!’

You know how it is, coffee gets you started, then you gotta get ready for the day!

The old “morning constitutional” – With all the daily chores ahead – this is a great time to do a little multitasking & check my email & texts!

If I don’t stretch and exercise, my whole day is off…

Believe me folks, the “middle age spread” is REAL! Gotta eat right and do my crunches!

This time of the year with school & church festivities, there is always something to contribute 🎃

Guess who drew “bake sale” at the school fundraiser… Red Velvet Cake is the perfect choice!

It’s hard to catch a minute to just… Relax

Mike needs a little “Me time” every now and again – nothing better than kicking off my shoes 👠 and enjoying a good show and a cold drink!

You might even think the monotonous life we all leed has tamed & subdued Mike to the point that Murder is just off the menu… ?

Oh well… You know it’s hard for a leopard to change his spots 🎃

Happy Halloween 🎃 👻
