Carter's Water Garden


New Years Eve is Here! 🎊🎉🎆🍾❤️

Here we are, standing at the crossroads of another year… So many choices to make, so much work to be done. So many blessings to count and so much more to look forward too! A wise lady told me that ’Every day above ground is a Blessing!’ ❤️

So many opportunities lay ahead! As for me, I took the road less traveled by years ago, and so far so good… Happy New Year!

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

~ Robert Frost

I hope we all have a wonderful evening closing out 2021! And here’s to a HUGE 2022! 💥🍾

“Should auld acquaintance be Forgot and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be Forgot and days of auld lang syne? For auld lang syne, my dear,for auld lang syne, We’ll take a cup of kindness yet,for auld lang syne.”   

 ~ Robert Burns


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃 🇺🇸

I’m having my last cup of coffee for the morning and its fixing to get busy… We are hosting the days festivities and there is a LOT to do 😊 I’ve been listening to and watching the rain fall this morning, thinking about all I have to be thankful for… It’s quite a list! 🙏🏻 At the top are all my family and friends that truly enrich my life ❤️ I have been blessed to be able to live and work with the people that are most important to me in my life. Many of them will be here at our house later today, that is a true blessing🙏🏻 When I say the prayer later today I must also remember our soldiers and sailors that couldn’t be home with family today! I am very thankful for them and their sacrifices as well 🙏🏻

Happy Thanksgiving! 🙏🏻🦃🇺🇸

We live in the greatest nation in the world!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sunday Reflections…

Good day to everyone! Just finished a great brunch and sat down to finish my Blog that I started late last night… We finished up our last event of the season last night, and it was a FUN one! A local artist and friend for over 30+ years, Matt Brown came to the nursery last night with a literal truck load of art and paintings and we set up our Nursery as his Gallery of Art 🖼 We called it ’Art in the Garden’ and it was a very unique and a very special evening. We even set up a ’Blacklight Room’ in the Koi Shack to showcase some of Matts unique pieces. I’ll tell the rest of the story with a few pictures of last night.

Matt Brown (featured artist) and Charlotte Powell Vaughn (his mom) and Conor McGregor… 😊

What a great evening! Matt and I have been friend’s for many years now, Maybe its because we both work with our hands to make unique, artistic creations? Our mediums are very different, but I think his Artwork within the gardens and by my Waterfalls was pretty Awesome! And it brought a bunch of people out to enjoy a night of Art and enjoyment, another win-win!

PS: We are gonna do this again! 💥

“Each of us are flowers in the garden of life we bloom, 
We all bring a different light to brighten the daily gloom. 
We all posess great potential to inspire our fellow man, 
To offer peace and love is a choice we all should plan. 
We can each bring joy to a life filled with sadness, 
Just through a soft touch or word spoken in gladness. 
We can also bring peace to those with a troubled mind, 
Bring hope to a broken heart joy from the daily grind. 
For every flower has something beautiful to share, 
That has special meaning to someone, sometime, somewhere, 

But our time is short, just like a season, 
As autumn advances with purpose and reason. 
We all have these gifts and we must take a chance, 
If we spread peace and love it’s the garden we enhance… 

Enhance the garden… 
Spread the love… The peace will follow…”

~ Cosmic Dreamer

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

We will closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday for Labor Day! 👇🏻

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!


PS: We all need to say Thanks Pete! We all need a long weekend! 🇺🇸

By the way, I’m talking about Mr. –
“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.”
