Carter's Water Garden


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.”
~ Peter Drucker

20 Years… Reflection & Rememberance 🙏🏻 #neverforget

Its been 20 year since that horrific day!

• 2,977 Americans were Murdered!

• 343 Firefighters died saving others! Many that survived are dying from cancer now at an alarming rate! Thank a Firefighter today…

BUT – We survived! We united! We rebuilt!

#neverforget!

I remember that day and i remember this timeline. It was a day we can never forget!

Its been 20 years now. My wife was pregnant with our son when it happened. He is 19 now, working and going to school. Many of his peers don’t know much about what happened on 9/11! Watch the memorials with them today, they will be on ALL day! Talk about what happened that day & how it made you feel! We owe it to kids and we owe it to our fallen brothers and sisters to Never Forget! Lets reflect on the bravery of our first responders and say prayers for all the lives lost 🙏🏻 #neverforget !

We need to pull together again! Like we pulled together on 9/12! We rallied together, and we were stronger than we could have imagined! Prayers for our country and our countrymen today! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

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.”

Sunday Reflections…

Misty, foggy, overcast weather can be very relaxing, especially on a Sunday Morning… This morning has been fairly simple.
1st. I changed out my hummingbird feeders.

Then I fertilized the hanging baskets on my porch

then I decided to fix biscuits and gravy for breakfast 🍳

We have been eating “healthy” for a while now… But it ain’t nothing a good Biscuit and Gravy breakfast won’t fix!

Y’all enjoy your day!

“One old wives’ tale says that every foggy day during August equates to a day of snowfall during the following winter. Some also use this tale in more general terms, meaning that if there is a lot of fog throughout the month of August, there will be a lot of snow throughout the upcoming winter.”

~ Farmers Almanac
