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

Today is the last Wednesday of November! You know what that means right… ‘Last Call for Waterfall’s’!
Yes – it’s Waterfall Wednesday 💥

This beautiful Waterfall was built from natural Tennessee stone that was sourced on site! It has such a natural appearance that many that see it have to be convinced that it’s not a ‘real waterfall’! The homeowners just Love It! They start and end every day with this Water Feature right off their back porch.

So let’s say goodbye to November and get ready for the last month of 2022! Look! – Here’s comes Christmas 🎅🏼

Have a Great #Waterfallwednesday!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery Pond&Patio | Jackson, TN

It’s a bit chilly 🥶 this fine morning! But what a beautiful sunrise and the temps will climb into the 50’s today! And tonight we won’t go into the freezing temps (mid to upper 30’s) so we got that going for us 😊 You really do have to look for the good parts of most stories, at least that’s how I do it… And starting my day I always go check on my Waterfalls! Yes, even when it’s freezing cold like this morning. It really helps to get the day going!
I just posted an Instagram reel of my main Waterfall yesterday, perfect timing to use it here to kick off the week.

No better way to start the day!

It’s a cold start to the week, but start we must!

Enjoy this Day! 🙏🏻

Sunday Reflection’s…

Cold frosty morning 🥶 Had to break ice from the troughs for the 1st time this season… The leaves are still coming down, but most have already fallen. Thanksgiving is coming quick. Coffee ☕️ and breakfast 🍳 await.

We are looking at a little cold snap for the next week, dress accordingly!

“On a cold November morning Frost wrapped the world in an ashy hue Sucking the heart from silence As an optimistic sun gazed through Naked branches of oak and maple

Peeking through the limbs of gray Lighting the indigo skies with grace Dancing, flowing, praising In waves of enchantment, such riches Radiating warmth and awaking The crackle of leaves, stunned By the bitter air, the chilling stare Of freezing sparkles on thoughts Met by the luster of dawn”

~ Regina McIntosh


Enjoy this cold November day ❤️

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

The month of November is quickly advancing, 2 weeks from tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day! But today is my buffer from the quick passage of time! Today is Waterfall Wednesday!

This is a unique viewpoint of a very cool Water Feature! This is a picture right after it was first turned on! The deck you see in the distance is right off the house – From that viewpoint your overlooking the Pond. You can sit on the edge and put your feet in the water 😊 Pretty nice 👍🏻 But there are many viewpoints and each one reveals something special. The view you are enjoying here is from the lower portion of the feature. The Pond overflows into a stream that flows under a Bridge & into this lower chamber, which is really a hidden pump chamber and water holding area. This is a brand New Custom Water Feature! And I Love it!
This is my offering for #Waterfallwednesday!

Have a great day!

Pond Tip Tuesday | Pond Tips | Koi Health Tips | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Fall is in full swing! The sun is setting earlier every day & the temps are falling… We are past our first frost and more are coming by weeks end. Soon, the saddest part of the season will be paying us a visit… The time when we STOP feeding our Koi for the season

My Koi have eaten well this year & have put on a good bit of fat to get them through the Cool Season ahead. Now is the time that many of my clients and fellow Koi enthusiasts start asking a very important question…

– When do I stop feeding Cool Season Koi Food to my Pond Pets?

– My Answer- Remember the rule of 50!

It’s getting close to the time of the year to stop feeding our ‘Finned Friends’… Sad, but so important for their health and well being. Until the water is too cold, we can keep feeding Cool Temp Food to them – We have it at Carters Nursery Pond & Patio, 2846 Old Medina Rd. Jackson, TN


When the water temperature stabilizes below 50 degrees Fahrenheit you should stop feeding your Koi… Even Cool Season Koi Food… We like to call it the ‘Rule Of 50’… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Switching to a Cool Temperature Koi Food is very important for the health of your Koi! So is knowing when to stop feeding! 

Every Pond should have a floating Pond thermometer. Our finned friends are cold blooded & water temperature is very important when it comes to seasonal feeding times. Pick one up at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

So to wrap it up, keep a check on your water temp (via a Pond thermometer) & when your water temp stabilizes below 50 degrees, you should transition from Cool Season Koi Food to NO More feeding for this season. That’s the “Rule of 50”…

Viva La’ Fall!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A rainy Monday morning… So I’ve been messing around posting stuff and Found a nice video for the Monday Morning Moment of Zen. This video was taken 1 year ago around the same day as today. A beautiful flowing stream with multiple Waterfall’s ❤️ The best thing about this Natural Looking Water Feature is that it’s right by this couples back door. Imagine being able to enjoy this 24/7 in your own backyard… Priceless 🙏🏻

Enjoy your day!

Sunday Reflection’s…

It’s always easy to “Fall back”! My personal clock didn’t change though… I was wide awake shortly after 4am this morning. My iPhone had already updated, so I changed all the clocks ⏰, reset the oven and microwave clocks… Straitened up, made coffee, made biscuits and waited for the sunrise.

Shortly after breakfast, I let the chickens 🐓 out to free range a bit, then came back to drink some coffee ☕️

In the short time that I was in the house a couple of things happened. My sons Australian Shepherd got out of the fence and not only scattered my flock of chickens that were outside, she went into the hen house & ran ALL of my chickens out and scattered them to the wind 💨

You know what comes next… Trying to locate and round up chickens isn’t easy, in fact I’m still in the process… Y’all have a wonderful Sunday afternoon 🌞

“I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.”
