Throwback Thursday, Bringing It Home | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Do y’all know what “Throwback Thursday” is?  There’s no shame if you don’t 😊 It’s a fairly new social phenomenon… You post old photos from the past & hashtag it like this – #ThrowbackThursday OR #TBT – Then post it on your social media page for all the world to see 😊 I had already done today’s blog and was about to publish it this morning when my son came out to go to work with my crew. I literally got a lump in my throat thinking about how fast time flies by… So today, a short #TBT for ya.

This is a picture of Jacob from 10 years ago at one of our Butterfly House programs. He has grown up at the Nursery & Loves it ❤️

This one is from 12 or so years back. Jacob and his Grandad at a Pond Club Event 😊

Lot of great memories and Throwback Thursday pics of that little boy from yesterday.

Cut to 2019… Now he is 17 years old & 6’ 3”! Time flies by folks….

Now Jacob is learning the ropes of working in the field with the crew. And Loving it! 🌞

This is my offering on #ThrowbackThursday ! A look back & a glimpse of what’s to come❤️

 

Have a GREAT Day!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful night we had last evening. We had our Luau party and the weather was just perfect 😊 So many wonderful people came and enjoyed a beautiful June evening in our Garden. The music was Awesome and the food was Great!

From prepping the food to greeting guest yesterday was filled with fun! The neatest reactions came from some of the kids😊 Kids LOVE nature!

Summer is just starting! But it will be gone in the blink of an eye 👁… I hope you can get out and enjoy the Summer season. In fact, let’s all make a point to do just that😊 Times flying by…

 

“Mine is the Month of Roses; yes, and mine
The Month of Marriages! All pleasant sights
And scents, the fragrance of the blossoming vine,
The foliage of the valleys and the heights.
Mine are the longest days, the loveliest nights;
The mower’s scythe makes music to my ear;
I am the mother of all dear delights;
I am the fairest daughter of the year.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

Have a GREAT Sunday!

Happy Mother’s Day! Sunday Reflections…

Jacob and I got up early this morning to surprise his mom with breakfast 🍳 He is a very thoughtful son & I am proud of him! I know his Mother is as well! He LOVES his Mom! In fact, since he was a little bitty boy, he has called her “sweetheart” 😍 Still does to this day…

Jacob treated his Mother to breakfast this morning! Eggs, sausage, fruit and French toast! Happy Mother’s Day! 👩

I am having lunch with my Mom later today, as well as a few other mothers 😎… I’ve learned so much from my mom. She’s has always been there for me! What would any of us do without our mothers??? Thanks for always being there Mom! I love you! ❤️

The three most important lady’s in my life in this picture from earlier this year – ALL Mothers! My Mom, My Wife & My Sister 😊

Sunday Reflections…

Cold, icy mornings are great for sleeping in 😴 We stayed up late watching movies 🎥 with our son last night – Tha’ Birthday boy 😊

My little boy ain’t so little any more… 17 years old & 6’2”!

We are going to stay in today & watch a little football and spend some good quality time with each other. Time is flying by!  It’s here & it’s gone… 17 years it seems, in the blink of an eye…

I’m counting my blessings today. And trying to figure out where all the time has gone 🤔

Have a great Sunday!

 

PS: Go Pats! 🏈

Enjoying The Time on a Weekend Off | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

We are closed this weekend. We are taking time off for the observance of Labor Day. A little time to enjoy with our family & friends. To celebrate with one another! We all need a rest from our labors sometimes. I’m going to take advantage of it! I hope you all do too 😊

See you next Tuesday 👍

Time is flying by! Don’t miss it cause you can’t get it back!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

 

“Time is not a river
Nor a ticking clock
Nor an hourglass

We cannot save time
We cannot spend time
We cannot borrow time
We cannot buy time
We cannot cheat time

Time is not a gift
Time is not our friend
Nor our enemy
Time is not on our side
Time is not ours in any sense
Save for the single second
That holds our full attention
Then slips forever beyond grasp”

~ Mary Havran
