Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

Hummingbirds are such unique creatures ❤️ They love the rain 🌧 I’ve been out since early, on my porch listening to the rain at first, then as the world lit up watching the Hummingbirds take turns feeding on sugar water nectar… I swept the porch off and even played my guitar for a little while.

Its gone down to a light sprinkle now & it feels so good, sounds so good, smells so good… I Love a rainy morning like this ❤️

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Have a wonderful Sunday

Teamwork Tuesday! | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Do you work with a team of likeminded individuals? What do I mean by a ’Team’? Well, I just looked it up on the ’Interweb’ 😊

It defines a Team as a group of people who perform interdependent tasks to work toward accomplishing a common mission or specific objective. Boom 💥 Thats exactly what I meant! I have been working with the same group of guys and gals for so long that we exemplify this definition.

Now I am trying to get the word out that we are hiring some new Team Members!

Heres my announcement 👇🏻

Carters Nursery Pond & Patio is hiring!

  • We have a full time position open on our Construction Crew.
    We are seeking motivated individuals who would like to grow with us and our Nursery/Water Feature/Landscape family.

Some experience in the construction industry would be great. But a Landscaping background is not required. Mainly you must have a good work ethic!

A valid Drivers License is a Must! And being on time is REQUIRED! (That means a few minutes early).

We are primarily a Water feature company that installs Ponds, Streams, Waterfalls, Stone Work, Landscape Structures & Plantings.

You Must be able to lift at least 50 lbs repeatedly. Boulders & stone are heavy! A wheelbarrow full of dirt is a lot harder to move than you think!

Starting pay is based on experience & driving ability/record. If you work hard, you will advance in pay quickly!

This is a Fun place to work and we take great pride in our work.

Hours are normally 8am to 5pm. , M-F,
Some Saturdays are required (a few). Sometimes we do start as early as 6am and may work later than 5pm. This is construction after all, and you have to make hay when the sun shines.

ALSO – We are needing a couple of people part time at the nursery to help with general chores – watering, deadheading, trimming, fertilizing, general clean up and aiding shoppers. Flexible hours and LOTS of FUN! Come by the Nursery to apply.

Creation’s most unique and precious pearls

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.

  • Listen LIVE on your TuneIn app anywhere in the civilized world- WNWS 101.5fm. Talk Radio!”

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

What a Beautiful spring morning! The birds are singing, the air is crisp and cool and the whole Landscape is in Bloom! 💐 When I saw these Iris blooming in the forefront, I knew where todays inspiration was coming from ❤️ My Grandmother planted these Iris many moons 🌙 ago.

These Iris have been here for over 50 years. They just get more beautiful as time goes by…

#Waterfallwednesday is always a great day! Old memories just make it even better 😊
