Nothing, calms and relaxes you, like a Burble… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I told my wife that a minute ago and grinned 😊 Mmmm Hmmmm… ”Lets hear it, whats a burble”? Well well I said, let me lay this on ya’ real quick…

Here’s the definition of Burble : Verb ;

“To burble is to move with a rippling flow, the way water bubbles down the side of a small garden waterfall. A stream burbles as it travels along its bed, bubbling over rocks and branches. The verb burble captures both the movement of the water and the sound it makes as it moves.”
~ definition from vocabulary.com

If you just watched and listened to this :30 second video, you know what a Burble sounds like 😊 This Saturday night, during the Moonlight Pond Tour, theres gonna be ”A WHOLE LOTTA BURBLING GOING ON” 💥

Saturday is the night! Tickets are on Sale Now! At Carters Nursery Pond & Patio

There will be LIVE Music at the Nursery Saturday Night during the Pond Tour! AND – I might even perform my brand new ditty ”Whole Lotta Burbling Goin On” 💥

Moonlit Landscapes | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Last night was so beautiful 🤩 Jo and I stayed out in the garden till late… It got me to thinking about an event that will be happening later this year… Carters Nursery’s ‘Moonlight Pond Tour’… It didn’t happen last year, but this year, It’s On! 💥

I got out last night and checked my lights in anticipation of the Moonlight Pond Tour. I can’t wait to share this nighttime world with attendees.

The 17th Annual ‘Moonlight Pond Tour’ – Our Annual Night Time Pond Tour is on! The tour always falls on a Saturday Night closest to the Full Harvest Moon! This years date is Saturday September 18th! Mark your calendar and don’t miss this Unique Garden Tour Experience! Carters Nursery is “Pond Central” for the Pond Tour and we invite you to come by throughout the evening to sit a spell, have a drink & a light snack, Enjoy the Fire Pit and look at the BEAUTIFUL Gardens and Water Feature Lighting. I can’t wait!

The ‘Nightscape’ is my favorite!
These are just a few pictures I took last night to show you a glimpse of what’s to come.
The sky was surreal last night. Looking back at the house from a distance was amazing. Just wait till the tour! It will be even more amazing.

The daytime gardens are so much different than the Nighttime garden. The night garden is all about 100% enjoyment!

Have a great Day!

Blue Moonbeams 🌚 & Trick or Treat Dreams 🎃

Blue Moon Tonight! First one since March 31st., 2018! Oh, and it’s on Halloween 🎃 which Makes it very special! The last Halloween with a Blue Moon was all the way back in 1944! We were fighting WW II! 💥 Oh, and it’s SATURDAY! When you combine these things with the fact that it’s also a Saturday, now we’re talking very rare! In fact, there won’t be another like it for 250 years!

Halloween night and the moon 🌝 is Full! It’s also a Blue Moon 🌚

Oh, and I almost forgot… One more factor to consider… Tonight is the night we roll back the clocks ⏰ an hour! Yep, it’s “Fall Back for Daylight Savings” tonight!

Set your clocks back tonight…

So if you add that factor to the Blue Moon, on Halloween 🎃 on a Saturday night – You blow the roof off the timeline of WHEN this will happen again! I’ve been searching and I don’t believe this exact sequence of events has EVER happened before?! Daylight Savings was started in 1918… That led to the question, WHEN will this all line up like this and happen again? I couldn’t completely track it down or do the exact math… But, if and when it does, it will be well over 1,000 years from now! 😳

Pretty cool huh 😎

Blue Moonbeams & Trick or Treat Dreams 🎃

Have a FUN evening! 🎃⏰💥🌚😱👀

Oh, Go Vote Tuesday! Use it, or loose it!

Happy Halloween 👻 🎃

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Moonlight Pond Tour – Postponed… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

2020 has been a tough one… As you know we have had to cancel all of our Pond Tours this season, as well as our other yearly events.


Sadly, I regret to inform you that we won’t be able to host this years Moonlight Pond Tour as well. 😥

It’s sad to say, but the Moonlight Pond Tour is postponed until 2021…
But, the Full Harvest Moon will still shine and I hope you will get outside and view it 🌝

October actually has 2 Full Moons this year 🌝 The Full Harvest Moon on October 1st  and The Full Hunters Moon on October 31st, which makes it a ‘Blue Moon’ 🌚 

I encourage you and that special someone to get outside on your own deck or patio and enjoy the coming Harvest Moon for yourself. Maybe a glass of 🍷 & a little music 🎶 


We are hoping and praying 🙏🏻 for a vaccine and an end to this mess… AND, We are making plans for 2021 Pond Tours and are Very hopeful about the future.

Thank you all for your support! Prayers 🙏🏻 for your health and safety as we go into the Fall Season. God Bless America 🇺🇸

The Last Blue Moon | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We have been blessed with some interesting Full Moons as of late, including a Full ‘Blue/Blood Moon’ (Eclipse) in January! Followed by a February with NO Full Moon! Tonight (Saturday, March 31st.)  is the second Full moon of March aka: a blue moon & within 60 days of the January Blue/Blood Moon! Rare indeed…

Back in January we had the first Blue/Blood Moon since 1866. It won’t happen again in our lifetime…

Tonight’s Blue Moon is the last one of 2018! In fact the Almanac says we wont’ have another Blue Moon until 2020! On Halloween night to be exact… Spooky :0

  • Tonight’s Full Moon is also a “Paschal Moon” – The first Full Moon after the Spring Equinox – the following Sunday is Easter (tomorrow – April 1st.)!
  • If you practice Moon Phase Gardening this is a good day to plant potatoes and carrots and to transplant perennials 🙂

    Get out tonight and walk through the garden. Strolling through a garden at night by the light of the full moon is an AWESOME experience. And if you miss this one, you won’ get another chance until Halloween 2020! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I’m going to enjoy the Full Moon tonight and the Sunrise in the morning!

Have a great evening!
