Carter's Water Garden


Free Christmas Spirit | Jackson, TN

The last several evenings we have been loading up in our family sleigh 🛷 (truck) and venturing outward in search of beautiful lights and affordable (free) Christmas Spirit 🎄
PS: We struck gold a few times 😊
Its amazing what happens with some good music and a truck 🛻 full of loved ones ❤️ This place is in N. Jackson and worth the drive! The entire neighborhood is decorated to some extent, and some went all out!

Just WOW! You can park on the curb and walk through this one ☝🏻 So beautiful 🤩 Complete with Christmas tunes and a crowd of happy people doing the same.

This is the street! Located in Wrights Mill neighborhood. Take the kiddos, grandma, friends, whoever – along with your favorite Christmas music and a big thermos of Hot Chocolate 🎅🏻


my phone was going dead when I got this short video, but as you see… Spectacular!

It’s almost Christmas 🎄 Get out there 💥

Sunday Reflections…

This morning I woke up to Christmas music 🎄 The Spirit is in the air! We are taking the whole weekend for Christmas activities… Looking at lights, fixing treats like Chex mix & Rum Cake 🍰 and Cookies 🍪. Don’t forget Family Breakfast 🍳 … or Brunch 😊

Omelettes and French Toast 😊

The lights last night were Amazing!

These were all takin at 1 Home! Check out “Hefner Hill” out on Fry Road if you want to see one heck of a display! Merry Christmas 🎄

Christmas is only 5 days away! Have you caught the Christmas Spirit? 🎅🏻🎄🤩

Remember
This December,
That love weighs more than gold!…

Christmas Gifts for your Pets! Don’t Forget Your KOI! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I Love ALL my pets! Including my Koi! I always get my Pups a special Christmas gift – A chew bone, a sweater, snacks, a new collar, etc… But what about my Koi???

OK, our dogs Love their presents and accessories! But what about my Finned Friends? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Franswa LOVES his scarf… Can’t you tell😊

I’ve been trying to think of a few things for my “Finned Friends”…

How about a scarf or onesie for the Koi?

I’m not sure this will work… But isn’t it cute 😊

A more practical gift would be food and snacks, but they can’t eat till spring…

They can’t eat it now, but “Spring is Coming”! You could stock up to be ready | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A new “Koi Cave” would be a great Christmas gift idea!

A built in Koi Cave is functional & looks Awesome!

A custom stone Koi Cave or an easy to install Koi Castle is always a good choice! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Koi Castles are available at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio and can be installed most anytime.

The ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT for your Koi (and YOU) would be a Bigger, Better KOI POND complete with a custom Koi Cave & Nightlights! Boom 💥

The Ultimate Christmas gift for your Koi (and YOU) would be a New, Custom Designed Pond with beautiful Waterfalls! Koi and Water Gardens go together like peas and carrots 🎅🏻 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I hope this helps! When I realized I was snubbing my Koi on Christmas, it hit me pretty hard… Never again! I’m getting something special this year for my ‘Finned Friends’ – aka: My Koi!

Merry Christmas! 🎅🏻🎄

Sunday Reflections…

Christmas spirit, to me is a feeling. I don’t always have that feeling before Christmas… Sometimes it comes on gradually… But when I feel it, when it finally happens, it Hits Home! Christmas spirit for others, is a gift. They just have, “It”! And those people are contagious 🤶🏻

Our house is always decorated for Christmas! My wife and son LOVE to decorate! She bakes and chocolate covers’ this and that almost every night!

Jo lives to decorate and make Christmas goodies 🍪 🌲 Most are for gifts 🎁 but I definitely get my share as a “taster” 🎅🏻

Here are some cookies ‘we’ made last night… Little things like Christmas cookies, movies, candles, decorations & smiles 😊 Really help to bring out that Christmas spirit ❤️

I usually cook Sunday breakfast 🥞 This Morning all the baking stuff was still out… as I move things around, I was alerted that there is “more baking today, so don’t mess with my stuff”… I’m going to have so much Christmas spirit that I’ll have to go on a diet 😊

“May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope; 
The spirit of Christmas which is peace; 
The heart of Christmas which is love.”
–   Ada V. Hendricks 

Have a great Sunday!
