Carter's Water Garden


Fall Beauty At Night | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I wanted to share a couple of pictures we took last night while we were messing around in the garden.

The moon was shining down just right 🌙
This young man was having all kinds of fun 😊

Thats what its all about! Getting outside and having an enjoyable evening most any season of the year! That is one of the things I always try to achive with my designs, I try to design Gardens that have year round interest!

So, I hope you have been enjoying this beautiful Fall weather we have had… And I hope you enjoy this little glimpse of my Water Garden on a Moonlit 🌝 Indian Summer night in Autumn 🍁

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Fall is in full splendor 🍂 We have peaked in our Fall color and soon the wind will sweep it all away 🌬 I wanted to share my little view of Autumn Beauty with you this morning. The colorful foliage with the crashing Waterfalls provides the perfect place of Zen on a crisp Monday morning…

Get out today and take a walk or a ride around the neighborhood and enjoy the Fall color while its still here… It will be gone in the blink of an eye 👁

Have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

This has been a beautiful Fall day… It started with a cold heavy fog 🌫 needing a long sleeved shirt and coat & ended with a light sunburn in short sleeves 👕 A wonderful Autumn Day 🍁

Thick heavy fog to start the day. “Silence looking at Silence”
So Beautiful ❤️
The water was slick and the color is really starting! Its a very late Fall this year…
Me and my sweetheart got out and did some ’Leaf Watching’🍁😊 Blue sky’s and Sunshine ☀️
When we got back to the house, the dogs pilled on 😊❤️

It looks like a beautiful week ahead. I hope you can get out and enjoy this little “Indian Summer” we are about to experience this week. Sunny 😎 with highs in the mid and upper 70’s.

“There’s a crispness in the air that greets the morning sun, a feeling of anticipation, a new day has begun.
Harvest days are ending, winter is drawing near, yet in between is surely the most special time of year.
They call it Indian Summer, and it seems to fit the bill, for it’s as if the Lord took a feathered brush and painted all the hills.

Now as I sit contented, atop of one of these, a book in hand to pass the time, the sound of a gentle breeze,
I can almost imagine an Indian child upon this mountaintop, looking down at the land of her forefathers, lost within her thoughts
For in every persons lifetime some heartache may occur, but on these hills in quiet solitude, God helps us to endure.

So I say that the eyes are a window, beauty is found within the soul, and upon the hills of Autumn, that are strewn with red and gold.”

~ Julie L. O’Connor

Have a good night 🌙

Beautiful ‘Indian Summer’ Weather

We are planting a beautiful Landscape today! It’s such a beautiful Fall day! WARM! 85 or so🌞 Sweaty ‘Indian Summer’ weather! I’ll take it 😊

Many trees are at peak color and the sun is warm with almost no breeze. Temps in the 80’s all week! I just love Tennessee in the Fall! #Indiansummer

Along the line of smoky hills 
The crimson forest stands, 
And all the day the blue-jay calls 
Throughout the autumn lands. 

Now by the brook the maple leans 
With all his glory spread, 
And all the sumachs on the hills 
Have turned their green to red. 

Now by great marshes wrapt in mist, 
Or past some river’s mouth, 
Throughout the long, still autumn day 
Wild birds are flying south.

~ William Wilfred Campbell

Have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

After work yesterday, we got out on the water to see how the Fall color show was progressing. I Love ❤️ Fall 🍁 I am blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world and I know it 😊 In a few shorts weeks we will be looking at Thanksgiving 🦃 And all the reds and oranges and golden color will be gone for the year… Get out and see it now because it won’t stay around long… Time flies by 💨

“Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.“

~ Robert Frost

The colors are becoming more vivid and the birds 🦢 are busy preparing for the Winter months to come. So much to see right now 🍁

Breakfast 🍳 is calling me…

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

The leaves have been coming down like rain the last couple of days. It’s beautiful to watch. Add to that the 4 strait nights of freezing temps … November has made itself known 😊 Thanksgiving is coming!

Many trees are at peak color and the leaves are raining down when the wind blows…

 

“November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.
With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.
The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.”
    ~ Elizabeth Coatsworth

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!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Today is the first day of Fall! The autumnal equinox… Equinox of course means equal, today the night and day have an equal split of time. There is something very Zen like about the changing of the seasons.

The weather has dried considerably & some trees are starting to defoliate, like the Birch leaves you see in this short video  You even get a glimpse of a pumpkin 🎃 Embrace the Fall, for it is here…

Time for a good Bonfire 🔥 Are you ready?!

Bonfire Time!

“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous a– as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”

~ Stephen King

Have a Great day!
