Carter's Water Garden


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

Good Morning! 🌞 The weekend is behind us and new challenges are on the horizon… If you are focused and mentally prepared, you can meet any challenge head on. My Waterfalls and Koi help me find that place of focus, that place of Zen. Check out the short clip of my Waterfall and fish from last night 👇🏻

The waterfall sounds, the frogs 🐸 and the Koi make for quite the show. It’s a show I watch everyday 😊 I hope this clip shows you what I’m talking about.
Have a blessed Monday!

Sunday Reflections…

Spring is my favorite season for many reasons. It’s also my busiest season for many of the same reasons. Coming out of Winter, everyone emerges from their hibernation and blossoms 🌺 The phone starts ringing, and I’m out designing Waterfalls and Landscapes 6 and maybe even 7 days a week… And, I love ❤️ it!
But, right about mid May every year, I look up and realize that Spring is running away… Keeping the work/life balance is tough sometimes 😊 Even on a Sunday Morning.

IF you haven’t, get out there now and grab some Spring before we transition to Summer… It’s right around the corner 🌞

“By the time one is eighty, it is said, there is no longer a tug of war in the garden with the May flowers hauling like mad against the claims of the other months.  All is at last in balance and all is serene.  The gardener is usually dead, of course.”

2021 is Coming! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We are at the end of 2020! As the last few days count down, I find myself doing what I always do this time of the year… Planning! Getting ready for next season! I’m hopeful that the coming spring will bring a more normal season for us all! Last years entire event schedule was ruined by COVID-19… NO workshops, no pond tours, no seminars, nothing got to happen. So, I’m really excited and hopeful, that things are going to be much different in this new year!

Every year I sit down and plan events with a fresh new calendar. This new year will be no different! If you fail to plan, your planning to fail! I’m looking forward to a better 2021!

We also plan to eat our traditional New Years Meal! Hog Jowl, black eyed peas, cabbage, greens, cornbread & more! These old traditions must live on!

I LOVE our New Years tradition of eating dinner with the family. We always have fried Hog Jowl, Black Eyed Peas, Turnip Greens & Cornbread! Plus much more … I’m ready to Welcome in 2021!

In any case, 2021 Is Coming, ready or not… Be ready 😊

1 Month From Today = Spring? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

I thought March 21st was the 1st day of Spring? Well normally yes, but sometimes the 20th is it… But never the 19th or the 22nd… NOT SO FAST!

This year we will see an early Spring for sure! March 19th. to be exact!

Several factors have caused this earlier than normal Spring date. I have attached an article from the Farmers Almanac below that explains the whole deal. Check it out 👇🏻

Spring Equinox 2020: The First Day of Spring

Like I’ve been saying all this time –

“Spring is Coming”! Boom 💥
