Carter's Water Garden

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

July is always a hot, sticky month in Tennessee! The “Dog Days” of Summer are upon us for sure… But, if you really want to cool down around Carters Nursery, just ask a cat where to find a good spot 😎

The cats that live around Cartercountry seem to Love this spillways pot. They drink from it and lie down in its shadow most everyday. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

July 3rd. to August 11th. are designated the “Dog Days of Summer”… Maybe we should call em the Cat Days 😊

It’s #waterfallwednesday

Stay Cool 😎 out there!

Sunday Reflections…

When you live at a Nursery, there are still many things to do on a Sunday morning. Check the Greenhouses, water plants, etc… This morning there was a little storm cleanup, and we had to check all the Fountains and Ponds for debris in the skimmers and the like (Bad wind and storms last night). But I love it 😊 Walking into a warm greenhouse, the smell of the plants and the beauty of all the plants, Heaven! I’m still sitting in the greenhouse as I type this ❤️ The north wind is blowing outside today… But in here, it’s a Sunny, Warm Spring day!

You might not have a greenhouse, but I hope you get out and enjoy this beautiful day!

“I like to think of people as a greenhouse
We are only a short moment in history
We can be radiant and beautiful
We can diffuse bliss and contentment
We can show the world that there is more to it 
Some of us are short-lived gardens
We forget to water ourselves
Forget that we need sunshine to live
We forget that most on our rainy days
When clouds swarm our four walls
And the light of day does not touch us like it used to
Our flowers droop, fall, and die
We are only plants that require attention
Living objects that some pick up and some only marvel at
We are unique and earmarked
We are not the same
But each of us are fascinating in our own way
Do not forget to take care of yourself
You have so much more to yourself
Than the desolation you feel”

Brunch is fixing to happen 😊

Lost and Found!

We seem to find our share of animals in need 😇 And sometimes in the darndest places!

We don’t know how this little guy found his way into our boat… But he was definitely lost!

When I first saw him hiding in my boat I actually thought it was a baby opossum 😮But instead it was a cute baby kitten that was very scared & very hungry!

He wouldn’t eat solid food, but lapped up some half&half 😊

After getting something in its belly he became a little socialite, visiting each one of us and being so sweet. We decided we had to find someone who wanted this little baby! 

Almost immediately we had someone say they would love to take her. BUT, she had to talk to her grandkids and their parents…

This lovely lady called her kids about adopting this little kitten for her grandkids! GREAT NEWS! – They worked it out and took this little baby into their family 😊

I LOVE it when things work out with abandoned animals! This little baby kitten found a forever home! That’s a success story in my book! What was lost is found and all’s good in a little part of the world 😊

Have a Great Day!

And Then There Was ONE | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Our little pack of nursery kittens have all grown up healthy and happy and 3 of the 4 have found a ‘Forever Home’!

Here’s a picture of Sassy & the kittens. She had this small litter of kittens on Easter Sunday night. We kept them dry & warm & Sassy did the rest. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We have just one beautiful kitten left that needs a loving home 🙂 Luna is her name and she is a ‘Calico’.

Did you know that almost ALL calico cats are female? In fact, only 1 in 3,000 calico’s is born male! WOW! Why? The tri-color coat is linked to the X chromosome – it takes two X chromosomes to make the 3 colors…

Luna is the sweetest kitten of them all I think. If you want a healthy, happy, beautiful kitten, come by and look at Luna 🙂

Luna is the sweetest kitten of them all in my opinion. Come by and see her.

The ‘Easter Quadruplets’ have grown up and all but 1 has found a new home. We have been blessed to watch and be able to help these these little babies grow up. Thanks for the feedback and the great comments. AND thanks to everyone who stopped by to see these little beauties.

Have a HAPPY day!
