Sunday Reflections…

We are 2 weeks from the time change. We “Spring forward” Sunday March the 13th at 2am! Then only a week after that BOOM 💥 1st day of Spring! Rain and more rain 🌧 Wind 💨 Ice 🧊 Snow ❄️ – But still, Spring is Coming! This lingering winter weather and slow build up and transition is always what causes my Spring Fever 🌼 🤒 🌼

Spring Fever is real! Heres a quote from a few years back – ”Back when the phrase first appeared in the U.S. in the 1850s, spring fever meant “the listless feeling caused by the first sudden increase of temperature in spring,” according to one dictionary.”

If nothing else, this energy for Spring gets me up and moving! Its Sunday and I’ve already done a full days work! 😊 The week ahead looks promising! I have a LOT of work to catch up on!

Even the Psalmist writes of a yearning in the scriptures – “I yearn for the Lord, more than watchmen do for the morning, yes, more than watchmen do for the morning.” ~ Psalm 130:6

Spring is Coming!

“Is the Spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”… “It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine”…

~ Frances Hodgson Burnett


Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

Spring is my favorite season for many reasons. It’s also my busiest season for many of the same reasons. Coming out of Winter, everyone emerges from their hibernation and blossoms 🌺 The phone starts ringing, and I’m out designing Waterfalls and Landscapes 6 and maybe even 7 days a week… And, I love ❤️ it!
But, right about mid May every year, I look up and realize that Spring is running away… Keeping the work/life balance is tough sometimes 😊 Even on a Sunday Morning.

IF you haven’t, get out there now and grab some Spring before we transition to Summer… It’s right around the corner 🌞

“By the time one is eighty, it is said, there is no longer a tug of war in the garden with the May flowers hauling like mad against the claims of the other months.  All is at last in balance and all is serene.  The gardener is usually dead, of course.”

~ Henry Mitchell

Sunday Reflections…

As I watched the sky slowly come to light this morning, I listened to everything wake up in turn. All the different birds singing and chirping and coming to life as the morning sun made its slow progression. No matter how many times I sit and listen, it never disappoints… I’m also always surprised at how fast the Spring moves by. Here we are in May 😳 Already in mid season. I try to enjoy every day of it! The Sunrise 🌅 to the Sunset 🌇 The Garden to the River…

Does this rock look like a hand making a peace ✌🏻 sign or is it just me? 😊
Dinners on the patio again! I love Spring! ❤️
Crazy Legs is Loving the Pond scene 😊
All this happened in one Spring day and I still made it to the river and enjoyed the sunset from the water 🌅

“The world’s favorite season is the spring. 
All things seem possible in May.”
~  Edwin Way Teale

This one was posted a little late… A VERY full day!

Enjoy your evening…

Hello March! Hello Spring 💐 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Tennessee

Yes! March is the 1st Month of Spring 💐 It’s also the month we “Spring Forward”, which I actually love ❤️ because I like to stay outside in the evenings after work… I know there are no more hours or time in the day, BUT, it’s always so nice to have the evenings back! March 1st is the 60th day of the year… And now is when the Magic starts to happen! The Daffodils and many other early Spring bulbs start blooming, along with other harbingers of the season like the ‘Yellow Bell’ Forsythia, Quince, Oriental Magnolias and so many other native trees and shrubs… We are entering the most exciting time of the year!

Nothing says Spring more than blooming Daffodils 🌼
There is something about seeing the Yellow Bells’ blooming that brings SPRING into sharp focus! Get ready, it’s Happening!
A Redbud (Cercis canadensis) in full Spring bloom. One of my favorite early Spring blooming trees | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN
Saucer’ Magnolia – (Magnolia × soulangeana). A harbinger of Spring! This one has been growing in my garden for decades! Sooo beautiful 🙂 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

There’s only one thing that Spring brings that I don’t like…


Oh well… Ya’ gotta take the good with the bad sometimes! 😊

Have a good one!

Sunday Reflections…

Just a couple more weekends of football will take us into February, then we will start to notice the signs… swelling buds, emerging tips of spring foliage & the crappie will be biting in earnest! I don’t know about you, but I’m already ready for Spring!

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

Shoots are thrusting through the cold earth, ‘Tho the wind is in the north;Look! The snowdrop, crocus, scilla Struggle, bravely, to come forth!
Soon each fragile, gentle, blossom Will appear, to cheer each way,Hearts will gladden at their promise,Of clear, fresh, sunlit, springtime days!
       ~ Greta M. Sears 

Have a great Sunday!

PS: It’s a Beautiful day! 🌞
