Thats a VERY important question! I mean, literally half of every day is either going into or coming out of darkness… The vast majority of us work during “business hours”, which means most of our free time is in the evening or at night! 🌙 So, let me ask you again, Do you enjoy your Garden at Night?!

Wow right! imagine something like this beautiful Waterfall being the ‘focal point’ of your Garden… I bet you would spend a lot more time outside away from the TV 🌕

This weekend there is a very Unique Opportunity to get outside, under a Full Moon, and tour some Gorgeous, well lit Gardens! All of them include beautiful Water Features and extensive lighting and Landscaping. Some with Outdoor Kitchens, Fire pits, Patios, Pergolas and more.

This is the best ”Date Night” of the year! You tour around in the privacy of your own vehicle, at your own pace. Then explore these beautiful Private Gardens. Its 100% self guided and the directions are easy to follow along with.

After your eyes are opened to this ”Nighttime World”, you will never be the same 😊❤️

If your wanting to get some ideas and see what others have done to be better able to enjoy their evenings and nights, Don’t miss this Tour.

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning 🌞 Sunday morning is the start of the new week, and quite the week is ahead… This week leads us to Saturday evening and our annual Moonlight Pond Tour 🌝 There is always so much to do! Ive been sipping coffee thinking about it and scribbling down a rough list as things come to me… Last minute kind of stuff, you know how it works, a ”few little details”… This = a week of Hard Work!

Sunsets are one of my favorite parts of the day! And a sunset on the water… Zen! No better way to end a week than a great Saturday evening sunset 🌅

Last evenings perfect sunset was followed by a rising, waxing moon 🌙 So beautiful! This months Full Moon is the Harvest Moon 🌝 which means, the Moonlight Pond Tour is coming!

What a perfect night!🌙 We stayed out till it was so dark that we couldn’t hardly see to dock our boat… Perfect 👌🏼

If you have ever made big plans with great intentions of success, you know what it means to have a ”few details” to take care of… “All we lack is finishing up”… ie; Gotta get to work!

Y’all have a great Sunday! See ya’ Saturday evening 😊

“Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.”

Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day is a national tribute to the contributions that American workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. The American worker is the best in the world! 🇺🇸

If you are a working man or woman, enjoy your time off! You earned it!

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

Sunday Reflections…

Late nights slow down an early morning 😊 but this morning was perfect! A slow easy rain 🌧 was falling until around 8:30 and now it’s clear and cool. Perfect for the last big dust up of Summer ⛅️ Every year we talk about doing something different for Labor Day Weekend , but we always end up at the river 🚤

It all starts with a good breakfast 🍳

“Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.”

~ Ralph Marston


Have a Happy Labor Day! 🇺🇸

Sorry, We’re Closed | Happy Labor Day Weekend! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Yes, the headlines are true… We are closed until Tuesday in observance of Labor Day. Did you know that the Labor Day holiday goes all the way back to the 1800’s?! Pretty cool 😎 I don’t know about you, but my crew has earned a long weekend! Their hard work, along with many others out there, is what makes our country great!

The whole team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio wants to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy Labor Day Weekend! The Nursery will be closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday in observance of the Holiday!

Thanks to my all my people for their hard work and dedication! ❤️

And God Bless the American Worker! 💪🏼 🇺🇸

“Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too.”
