Sunday Reflections…

What a week it was! 1st day of Summer ✔️ record high heat ✔️ My iPhone self destructed ✔️ Pond Tour ✔️ But, We got it all done! ✔️ And now this coming weekend is the 4th of July! 💥🇺🇸 Time… Its flying by… Pay attention or you’ll blink and bam, its Labor Day and Summer will be gone…

Just a few pics form yesterdays Pond Tour/Fund Raiser. Hopefully we can all enjoy a little Summer this next week, after all its almost Independence Day!

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”

~ John Lubbock

Enjoy this Summer Day!

Throwback Thursday | Rescue Cat Edition | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I always enjoy looking for a good #Throwbackthursday pic to reflect on. This one today really fits the bill –

This is Little Paw in a Throwback pic from this date 10 years ago… She is a rescue cat that we got from a local rescue friend many years ago. Our upcoming fund raiser for the Jackson Animal Care Center really clicked when this picture popped up on Facebook this morning ❤️

Little Paw is still a VIP in our daily lives all these years later… I Love my pets! and I Love Throwback Thursday!

Who knows, you might decide to adopt a pet after the Pond Tour as well?

Have a great #throwbackthursday !
