Sunday Reflections…

The color is really changing in the landscape now. The Maples and Dogwoods are at peak. I try to keep my eye on the changing colors every Fall. It’s such a beautiful time of the year 🍁 But, blink and you’ll miss something. You just gotta get out there to enjoy it 😊

Fall color is here today, gone tomorrow… Get out and see it now 😊

”In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November.”

~ Rose G. Kingsley

Have a Happy Day!

Thanksgiving Weekend “To-Do” List… PS: I’m gonna need a day off after this!

This is always a busy weekend! Cooking & then cleaning up from the ‘Big Dinner’, is a given… But my personal list of to-dos seems to grow every year 🤔

  •  Take down and store Fall/Thanksgiving decorations with my wife.  Then –
  • Fire up the smoker & put some meat on for later…
  • Get in the attic and carry the tree, decorations & other Christmas decor down & put together/set up.

    Just a few Christmas trees from years past.

  • Plant 150 Daffodil bulbs.

    The traditional time to plant Spring flowering bulbs is between Thanksgiving & Christmas.

  • Outdoor Christmas lighting (Not a lot)…
  • Trash duty.

Then dinner and a night out…

Wow! Looking at my list, this looks a bit ambitious 🤨 😂

Have a great Holiday Weekend! And pace yourself 😊

9 Tuesday’s Tiil Christmas? 🎃 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Did you know that Christmas is on a Tuesday this year? I didn’t either until the other day while running into a store for a quick purchase I had a lady say to me “Only 10 Tuesday’s left before Christmas”!

Don’t get so far ahead of yourself that you forget about today!

It seems to get earlier every year now… Blaring Christmas music in early October? Candy canes & sleighs 🛷…

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to carve a few more pumpkins 🎃 & go to a few more bonfires 🔥 before I start hanging Christmas stockings! Here’s to enjoying each season on its own merits 😊

Jeees! I haven’t even been to the Haunted Farm yet… Turn off jingle bells and let’s enjoy a happy Halloween or a Fall Fest… 

ps: Only 9 Tuesday’s till Christmas 😂
