Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

Today has been like the rest of this entire week… Long and Beautiful! 🌞 Fall came in with cool temps and blue skies. We got out on the lake today to enjoy a little time off and to officially welcome in Fall.

The weather was perfect today! Several people had the same idea 😊

Although I hate the Summer being behind us, Fall is always a beautiful, welcome season… Here’s to Fall!🍁🔥🏈

“Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too, – 
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing, and now with treble soft
The redbreast whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.”

~ John Keats

Throwback Thursday | Old Memories Of Things To Come | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Summer is still in glorious season, but when you run a business you have to stay ahead of the changes… Which are coming quickly. In fact, Fall is just around the corner. When I think of Fall, I think of several things, but Pumpkins 🎃 Maybe #1! This throwback pic from several years ago brings back nothing but good memories… And a peak into our not to distant future 😊

Do you enjoy Fall? Fall planting, cooler weather and Jack-O-Lanterns 🎃 are coming!

This picture of my son and I is repeated every Fall and I’m looking forward to it 😊

Y’all have a great #Throwbackthursday evening!

Sunday Reflections…

Does the changing of the seasons change your entire world? If it does, you may be in a seasonal business… Or, you may just be a gardener 🪴

Between watering plants, designing water features and landscapes and running a business, it’s sometimes hard to find the time to attend to your own garden. Sunday’s in the garden are my therapy…

What a beautiful Sunday morning! A dense fog burned off into a gorgeous Sunny day! I for one won’t be wasting time inside watching TV 📺

My “Seasonal Sunday Office” is feeling pretty good 😌

If your wondering what my beautiful photographer is looking at…. 👇🏻
One of our greenhouse frogs 🐸 send me an idea for a great greenhouse frog name 💥 I’ll post it in your honor 😉

“An altered look about the hills;
A Tyrian light the village fills;
A wider sunrise in the dawn;
A deeper twilight on the lawn;
A print of a vermilion foot;
A purple finger on the slope;
A flippant fly upon the pane;
A spider at his trade again;
An added strut in chanticleer;
A flower expected everywhere …”

~  Emily Dickinson, Nature : April

Have a happy day!

Sunday Reflections…

The color is really changing in the landscape now. The Maples and Dogwoods are at peak. I try to keep my eye on the changing colors every Fall. It’s such a beautiful time of the year 🍁 But, blink and you’ll miss something. You just gotta get out there to enjoy it 😊

Fall color is here today, gone tomorrow… Get out and see it now 😊

”In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November.”

~ Rose G. Kingsley

Have a Happy Day!

Sunday Reflections…

I was sipping my coffee waiting and watching the sun come up 🌞 when I thought ‘tomorrow is the last day of September’… Wow! I don’t know if it’s just me, but this entire year has just flown by! And it always seems to speed up more when we get to the holidays!

The Fall Color is Coming! 🍁 Taking a ride or walk to enjoy the Fall is one of the joys of the season.

I always try to really enjoy each season as they come, I just feel like there’s a need to slow this train down a bit 😊 I am ready for the color show that is to come 🍁 And looking around the last couple days, it’s already started… I’m gonna go for a ride in the country today for a prequel and take note of what’s happening. Fall is such a beautiful season!

“Spring comes with flowers, autumn with the moon, summer with the breeze, winter with snow. When idle concerns don’t fill your thoughts, that’s your best season.”

~ Wu-Men

Have a great Sunday,

Sunday Reflections…

This week alone I have heard several people say they are ready for Fall weather… I too love the Fall, but I’m still enjoying the Summer… I used to find myself mourning the seasons as they pass, No more! I endeavor to enjoy them as they come. And right now, good old hot, sticky August is on the table 😊

One of the things I love most about Summer, is my shady porch swing😊 I just Love my tree ferns & flowers 🌺 But like the man says, Fall is Coming’!

“Whilst August yet wears her golden crown,
Ripening fields lush- bright with promise;
Summer waxes long, then wanes, quietly passing
Her fading green glory on to riotous Autumn.”

~ Michelle L. Thieme, August’s Crown 

Have a great Sunday 🙏🏻
