Throwback Thursday | #Throwbackthursday

This popped up as a Facebook memory today from 7 years ago… So, boom 💥 heres a very memorable Throwback!

There was a heck of a lightning storm going on and I was trying to photograph some lightning that was striking the ground right behind the house across the street (I know – real smart:) All the other lightning was shooting strait down but was in long strait bolts. This one was just as bright and vivid, but much larger and as you see, ‘beam like’…This picture was pretty cool – the lightning was much more vivid than the picture shows and it came down almost like a cylindrical barrel of lightning… Never seen anything quite like it.

I originally posted this picture to Facebook 7 years ago today. I remember this one! Never seen or felt one quite like this before or since…

That strange ’ray of lightning’ gave me the weirdest feeling! A close lightning strike will make your hair stand up etc., but this one took my breath… I still remember the feeling of not being able to draw a breath in, for what seemed like a minute. Strange and Awesome feeling! My offering for #Throwbackthursday!

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 !

Throwback Thursday Memories | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I opened up my Facebook this morning and this ”Facebook Memory” popped up from 5 years ago. I did Bill Ways show on Fridays for 15 years, so I think this qualifies as a Throwback 😊 But, what do you call it? A facebook comment? A note? A post? A tweet?? In any case here it is 👇🏻from 5/5/2017

“Good morning! Brrrr! A cool blast of cold air this morning! The old folks called this “Blackberry Winter”. I’m walking into the studio to sit in with Bill Way & Dan DeFilippo to talk ‘Outdoor Living’ & Spring Gardening! Call me with ALL your questions at 731-423-8101. OR text me your questions at 731-277-5155.

This pic was posted with the comment! I Love Waterfalls!

This popped up in my Facebook feed today as a memory. I thought it was a great Throwback Thursday to share. Recreational Ponds and Interactive Water Features are HOT!

“The old fashioned, chemical treated swimming pools are becoming a thing of the past. This beautiful crystal clear “Recreational Pond” is all natural and 100% organic! Plants and bio filters do the work and you have all this beauty to enjoy when it’s too cold to swim.”

I just love #Throwbackthursday!

Throwback Thursday | #Throwbackthursday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Heres a beautiful #throwbackthursday memory from years ago. The really good part is, this is a repeating memory 😊 It comes back around every year and brings Spring with it…

We aren’t quite as far along this year but the foliage is emerging and soon – Blooms!

A living memory for Throwback Thursday! My great grandmother planted these many many years ago. Memory plants, legacy plants, just plain special plants! Today they are my #Throwbackthursday plants ❤️😊

Have a great day!
