A QUARTER OF A CENTURY OF LOVE!

This has been on my mind since January 1st.! Folks, this is the 25th. Anniversary of Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio! A “Quarter of a Century” of doing what we do… WOW! The first thing I need to do is say “THANK YOU” to all of YOU! We have the best customers in the world! AND, dare I say, the most loyal! Thank you for all the business and opportunity that you have afforded us, we could not have done it without your generous support!
I am working on a ‘retrospect’ of the last 25 years so we can all get a look back. I will post this as soon as I get it finished. There aren’t enough words to express the emotion I am feeling right now as I type this… Just know that it has been a GREAT ride! Very few people get to do what they love doing with the people that they love the most. I have been truly blessed! AND, I am looking forward to another 25 years ahead! Thanks again & I look forward to seeing you all around the Garden this year 🙂
