Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

I have been blessed with overall good health, so when I do get sick 😷 it’s awful… I’m finally getting over a case of the Flu with a Bronchitis kicker… Believe me when I tell you, it sucks! Cough, weakness, exhaustion, etc… But, thank the lord, I’m finally feeling better!
We are officially in December! I’ve been getting my strength back by tooling around the house a little trying to help get ready for the next big holiday 🎅🏼
Our Christmas tree 🎄 is up & quite a bit of decorating has been done as well. I’m actually starting to get that feeling of Christmas 🙏🏻

Christmas will be here before we know it! I hope you and yours enjoy the Holiday season that is upon us. ❤️

We’ve got Lots to do before years end! My biggest challenge is to keep a work/life balance through the holidays so I get to enjoy the season with my family too 😊

In any case, Christmas is coming! Be ready 🎅🏼

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.

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!

Sunday Reflection’s…

Time is so funny… Sometimes it drags on & other times it goes by so fast that you miss things. I say it all the time, but it seems like this year has gone by quicker than any year before 💨 Turn around and boom 💥 it’s Thanksgiving! We are hosting our family dinner here in a few days, so we have been busy straitening up, decorating and basically getting ready 🦃

After all these years of living and working and doing, the one thing I have figured out is, you have to be grateful for your blessings 🙏🏻 (Ps: I’m still working on it 😊)

With my hectic schedule it’s easy to push on and take things for granted just to get through this day and to the next… But you miss so many things in that process, the most important things. God, family, friends, rest, health & happiness can be glossed over and left in your wake… Maybe it’s like the spirit that comes over you at Christmas 🎅🏼 you want everyday to feel like that. ⭐️ Thanksgiving can be the same. I’m going to try to let my Gratitude exceed my expectations everyday and see what happens ❤️

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

~ William Arthur Ward


Happy Thanksgiving 🦃 to Everyone!

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 ❤️

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!
