Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

The morning after Christmas has now come and gone… Why does it always feel like Christmas is so far away, then you blink and its gone for another year? Hard to grasp… But we had a good family get together and dinner, saw some beautiful lights and decorations, and tried to remember and stay true to the real meaning of Christmas.

A few pics from dinner and family.

Now we have to take all the decorations down, clean everything up and get ready for a new year… Ready or not, here comes 2022!


When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and the princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers,
To make music in the heart.
~ Howard Thurman


Have a great last evening of Christmas weekend! 🎄🎅🏻❤️🙏🏻

Sunday Reflections…

Late nights slow down an early morning 😊 but this morning was perfect! A slow easy rain 🌧 was falling until around 8:30 and now it’s clear and cool. Perfect for the last big dust up of Summer ⛅️ Every year we talk about doing something different for Labor Day Weekend , but we always end up at the river 🚤

It all starts with a good breakfast 🍳

“Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.”

~ Ralph Marston


Have a Happy Labor Day! 🇺🇸

Sorry, We’re Closed | Happy Labor Day Weekend! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Yes, the headlines are true… We are closed until Tuesday in observance of Labor Day. Did you know that the Labor Day holiday goes all the way back to the 1800’s?! Pretty cool 😎 I don’t know about you, but my crew has earned a long weekend! Their hard work, along with many others out there, is what makes our country great!

The whole team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio wants to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy Labor Day Weekend! The Nursery will be closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday in observance of the Holiday!

Thanks to my all my people for their hard work and dedication! ❤️

And God Bless the American Worker! 💪🏼 🇺🇸

“Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too.”

Carters Nursery Is Closed In Observance Of Memorial Day

I have received a few calls and messages asking if we are open today, we are not… We are closed today and Monday for Memorial Day. Have a great weekend! And remember, This weekend we honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. “All gave some. Some gave all”.

Remember
Someone’s child, left long ago,
A strange land,
Someone’s foe.
An unmarked grave, fields of green,
Resting quiet,
Just eighteen.
Winds of freedom, wash us now,
Remember him,
This I vow

~ Victor C. Kleinschmit

Have a safe and Happy holiday!

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Memorial Day Break | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Memorial Day honors and mourns our brave men and women who gave ALL, in service to our country. The Memorial Day holiday is always on the last Monday of May and is considered the official start of the Summer season.
We always take a long weekend during this time to rest and reflect.


Please note that Carters Nursery will be CLOSED-

Friday the 28th thru Monday the 31st. in observance of Memorial Day. We will reopen Tuesday morning June 1st. and resume our normal schedule.

Thank You 🙏🏻 Have a wonderful holiday 🇺🇸


“By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
   Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood
   And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
   Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
   Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
   We set today a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
   When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare
   To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
   The shaft we raise to them and thee”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

I started out this morning headed to the post office to get some stamps… You know what happened 😊

In my rush to get started, I forgot what today is & Who it honors…

So, let me say –

‘Have a Great Martin Luther King, Jr. Day’!

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

God Bless America 🇺🇸
