Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

Crazy weather… It was supposed to have rained all day, but it didn’t rain a drop 💧So in essence we got a free day! 😊 So nice and so warm, it turned out to be a wonderful Spring day! Walking around the Landscape, so much is blooming 🌼 Daffodils, Magnolias, Forsythia and the Maples, birch and willow are coming out like gangbusters – don’t forget the Privet 🤧 can you say Pollen…

My grandad and I built this old chicken house together and our hens laid many an egg. This old Magnolia that lives back here never disappoints ❤️ Always a harbinger of Spring.

Did I mention crazy weather? Rain tonight. Freezing temps tomorrow night, followed by more rain and a chance of snow by weeks end… “If you don’t like the weather”…

Have a wonderful evening! 1 week from today we will have a much longer evening 😊

“Come with me into the woods. Where spring is advancing, as it does, no matter what, not being singular or particular, but one of the forever gifts, and certainly visible.”

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 ❤️
