Sunday Reflections…

Light rain falling this morning. Cool air. Last day of July… Lazy Sunday! We have been so busy and it has been so Hot and Dry… This rainy, cool day off feels like a blessing 🙏🏻

“A break in the heat
away from the front
no thunder, no lightning,
just rain, warm rain
falling near dusk
falling on eager ground
steaming blacktop
hungry plants
thirsty
turning toward the clouds
cooling, soothing rain
splashing in sudden puddles
catching in open screens
that certain smell
of summer rain.”
–  Raymond A. Foss

Have a great ’Lazy Sunday’…

Sunday Reflections…

Hummingbirds are such unique creatures ❤️ They love the rain 🌧 I’ve been out since early, on my porch listening to the rain at first, then as the world lit up watching the Hummingbirds take turns feeding on sugar water nectar… I swept the porch off and even played my guitar for a little while.

Its gone down to a light sprinkle now & it feels so good, sounds so good, smells so good… I Love a rainy morning like this ❤️

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Have a wonderful Sunday

Coming Soon – Saturday Gardening!

Well, the weather outside is awful! Rain 🌧 Wind 💨 Muddy- NOT a good day to be in the garden! Ahhh, but all that will change soon & we need to be ready!

Nasty weather this weekend… But – Cheer up, Spring is Coming!

It won’t be long till we see the sun again!! And it won’t be long until we are out in the garden! It sometimes seems like the end of gloomy days isn’t in sight, but take heart – Spring is Coming!

Have a great weekend!

What to do on a RAINY Cinco de Mayo | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

It’s PRIME TIME to be out in the garden right now, but alas, it’s gonna rain all day today… what to do? I just remembered it’s also May 5th. – AKA: Cinco de Mayo.

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

So I guess we will take it slow today and visit with some Mexican friends & partake of some good food!

My favorite taco’s! Mahi Mahi at Casa Marina in Jackson, TN 

Jo’s fav. – Chili Colorado 🙂

Then, grocery shopping and, hopefully, a nap 🙂 Gotta love a rain day 🙂

Sometimes a rainy day is a sweet thing 🙂 Enjoy yours! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
