Sunday Reflections…

Let me start out by saying, Happy Valentines Day! ❤️ Normally, I would be planning a nice breakfast and dinner out for my sweetheart ❤️ But, instead we have a Winter Storm Warning ⛔️ and the snows already started. So, I got up early and went to the store for us and my Mom & Dad & Mother in law… Usually Kroger is a ghost town on Sunday Morning, but not today…

It doesn’t look like much, BUT it just started! This is following a previous ice storm… So it’s fixing to get bad around here!

The old joke is to always run to the store at the 1st mention of snow to get bread and milk 🥛… Why? Maybe bread 🥖 pudding? Or French toast? A PB&J sandwich 🥪 always needs bread and a glass of milk. And, DON’T forget the TP 🧻 😃

No matter the weather, it’s still Valentines Day! ❤️ And I’m a blessed man to have a Valentine of my own! So dinners still on, it will be great too! Because I will be the chef 👩‍🍳

Here’s to all the Lovers out there! ❤️ Happy Valentines Day! ❤️

Valentines Day Approachith…

What do you give the special person in your life on Valentines Day? Dinner out? Jewelry? A box of chocolates from Walgreens? Believe it or not, I have a few ideas 💡 that will put them ‘Over the Moon’ 🌝

We have LOTS of unique gifts and jewelry for the special person in your life!

or maybe 🤔

cool clothing that says WE are special ❤️

or, you could write him or her a poem…

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you … I could walk through my garden forever.”
~ Alfred Tennyson

But who can say it better than Tennyson or Shakespeare… Get the gift 🎁 😊

PS: We are 1 month away from St. Valentines Day!

Valentines Day is Here! ❤️ | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Happy Valentines Day! To many people around the world, today is the ultimate day. A celebration of Love, Romance & Affection! Someone said “All you need is Love”…

Chocolate sales go through the roof today! Restaurants will have a great turnout all over as well with couples going out for dinner in celebration of their Love and affection for one another.

Some of my friends are naysayers… They say it’s nothing but commercialism. Well, they may be right, but, what’s the alternative? Not celebrating your love and affection for each other today? As for me, we’ve got reservations at 7 😊

This ones for my Valentine 😊 I Love you ❤️ Jo!

Happy Valentines Day to everyone!

PS: Love is celebrated all over the world today, but Valentines Day is not a public holiday anywhere in the world 🌎 Hmmm… 🤔

Your “Hump Day” Koi Fix – WHAT Does A Koi Pond Symbolize ? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I ❤️ Koi! And of course I ❤️ Koi Ponds too 😊

Lately I’ve been studying Kanji & symbolism in Japan. Last Wednesday I wrote about how the Kanji for Koi & Love are 1 in the same… 😊 I LOVE that! Koi also symbolize several other things in Japanese culture that are worthy of note!

Swimming koi represent advancement and determination. Fish symbolize wealth & surplus!

In the Koi Pond, the synergy of the Koi & the Pond & the Waterfalls come together & Love & Friendship are manifested.

This is the Kanji for Koi as well as the Kanji for Love.

This Kanji means Friendship.

 

Tomorrow is Valentines Day, a day made for Love & Friendship! We could start a new tradition – Take that special someone to the Koi Pond on Valentines Day 😊 I better not get too carried away, but I thought it was a great Segway between the two…

I really enjoy learning more about the Japanese culture! And I always Love learning more about Koi & Koi Ponds 😊 I have forged many friendships around Koi Ponds! So cool! I truly ❤️ My Job!

Have a great day & enjoy your Koi!

PS: Happy Valentines Day Eve…

Happy Pondering 🤔

This weekend has been a nice break with my family celibrating my wife’s birthday. It has rained all weekend and warmed up nicely. We sat out on the porch and listened to the sounds of the Peepers – harbingers of Spring!

This week is also Valentines Day! Always on the week of her birthday 😊 So again, it’s a special time. I hope everyone will enjoy the chance to spend time with the one you love & enjoy the coming of Spring. I can literally feel it.

These daffodils were planted by my grandma and always bring happy thoughts to me. Spring is almost here! Happy Valentines Day!

“While it is February one can taste the full joys of anticipation. Spring stands at the gate with her finger on the latch.”

~ Patience Strong

Happy Valentines Day!
