Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

All I can say is ”What a beautiful morning”! I think every bird in the world is singing the song of Spring! Ive been up and out since early… Coffee ☕️ ✔️ Breakfast ✔️ Watering ✔️ … We have moved pottery a bit and potted some things up as well. Its mid-morning break time, so I thought I would write this little blog and fix some homemade Lemonade 🍋 Nothing tastes as good as a fresh glass of sweet lemonade on a spring morning.

I just Love Spring!

“It’s lemonade in a cardboard cup between the legs of a freshly tanned, sunglass wearing, brown eyed girl. It’s a white Jeep, blaring Enrique loud.

It’s the sweat beneath the dark curls. It’s the country song that brings tears to your eyes. It’s the lessons learned, the mistakes made. It’s the future ahead, bright and beautiful. It’s the laughter, memories. It’s the good things in life. 

It’s Spring.

~ Alixis Russell


I’ll see y’all in the house about dark:30…

Monday Morning Fun | Meet Marty, The Laughing Kookaburra | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I am an animal lover! That love of animals is where I got the motivation to start our Annual Parade of Ponds to raise money for our local Humane Society. Earlier this year I found myself in South Florida to earn CEU’s (continuing education units) for my company’s Professional Pond Certification (CAC). The class was at a really cool place! Blakes exotic animal farm! This place has so many different animals! Lizards, fish, otters, turtles, birds and more! We spent 3 days there building some really cool Water Features! But todays video is about a really cool bird I met there… His name is Marty, he is a Laughing kookaburra and he is from Australia. Check him out as Blake tells you a little bit about him and shows you HOW he got his name 😊

We always have fun designing and building Water Features, but having animals like Marty around is just Awesome! We have native Kingfishers all over Tennessee, but they are small compared to this guy.

Have a great ’Fun’ Monday!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen

I love nature! Rivers, streams, lakes, flora & Fauna… That’s why today I thought I would share the call of this nesting mother Osprey (fish hawk). She’s on her nest, feeding her brood. We just happened to be taking some pictures from the boat and saw her on the nest. There is nothing more “Zen Like” to me than a true moment of nature.

It’s Monday! We are leading up to Memorial Day and I Love Ospreys 🦅 I hope you enjoyed this little moment of Zen. Have a great week 😊
