Spring Has Finally Sprung! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I’ve been counting down the days and hollering “Spring is Coming” from the rooftops! It’s felt like a long time coming, but Spring is finally here!

Ahhhh, Spring! Renewal. Resurgence. Resurrection.

Everything is waking up and flushing out again! How can you help but feel an awaking in this season ❤️ I Love Spring!

Today we sit in the center, with equal night and day. The Vernal/Spring Equinox.

Its going to be a beautiful day! Springtime in Tennessee! 🌼🌞❤️

Fall is Here! 🍁

Today is the “Official” 1st day of Fall. The Autumnal Equinox’! A very special day! The sun is right above the equator, and day and night are almost exactly equal in time 🕰 From here, the days get shorter and shorter as we slide towards the shortest day of the year… The Winter ❄️ Solstice, aka: The Longest Night 🌙 

Today the nighttime and daytime hours are equal. The days will get shorter and the nights longer all the way into the first day of Winter, aka: The Winter Solstice.

I remember when I was a kid, the big thing on the equinox’s was to stand an egg 🥚 on its head 🤔 I don’t know if that’s the only day you can accomplish this feat… But, I have done it on the equinox 🥚😊

Have YOU ever tried to balance an egg on the Spring or Fall equinox? It was a thing when I was a kid. I’m thinking it was around 3rd. Grade or so? I went home and worked for what seemed like hours, but finally got one to balance!
PS: science?

So, it’s time for Pansies, mums, violas, kale 🥬 Pumpkins 🎃 gourds, straw bales and corn stalks 🌾 Fire pits, cookouts and football 🏈 

Bring. It. On! Fall is Here! 💥🍁🍂🔥🎃 🏈  


Have a great day!

1 Month From Today = Spring? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

I thought March 21st was the 1st day of Spring? Well normally yes, but sometimes the 20th is it… But never the 19th or the 22nd… NOT SO FAST!

This year we will see an early Spring for sure! March 19th. to be exact!

Several factors have caused this earlier than normal Spring date. I have attached an article from the Farmers Almanac below that explains the whole deal. Check it out 👇🏻

Spring Equinox 2020: The First Day of Spring

Like I’ve been saying all this time –

“Spring is Coming”! Boom 💥

Spring at last, Spring at last! Hallelujah, SPRING AT LAST! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I’ve been hollering “Spring is Coming” for a couple of months now… And finally, the 1st. Day of Spring has arrived! And I’m about to freeze to death! Brrrrr! 40 degrees and a north wind… BUT, I’LL take it 🙂 Historically, the arrival of the 1st day of Spring & the arrival of pretty Spring weather aren’t always walking hand in hand 😊

The Farmer Almanac says the exact time of the Vernal Equinox is 12:15 pm today. The daytime & night time hours are equal today! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

They say if you were standing on the equator today, the sun would be traveling directly overhead. Pretty cool…

All I really know is that the promise of Spring has arrived! That doesnt mean the weather will be “Spring Like” though… Many are seeing snow and freezing temps! But, warmer sunny days are right around the corner 🙂

I’m so ready for the foliage and flowers of the Spring/Summer growing season 😊 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

On the other side of the equator its the opposite – This is the first day of FALL… WOW! I’m glad we aren’t going into Fall/Winter again! It feels so nice to hear the singing birds and to see all the blooming beauty in the gardens

In a pleasant spring morning all men’s sins are forgiven.
~ Henry David Thoreau

Heres to Spring! See y’all in the Garden! 😊
