Carter's Water Garden


My Porch Plants | Porchscaping | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I was just trimming my plants back a little bit today… Its always a good practice when we’re around the 4th. of July… They just get heavy and tired and need a little TLC 😊 I just thought I would share some of my favorites and how they look after a little mid season trim…

A mix of colors and texture for sure, with some aquatic plants thrown in for good measure.
I’ve still got to trim these Pitcher Plants back a bit, but I just love them! When your plants eat bugs for you, ya just got to love em! 😊
Just look at that bloom. These have lived in this container for a few years now, that’s why we’re seeing this prolific blossoming this season…
I’ve even started using Hydrangeas in Porch Planters. This ‘Limelight’ is showing out 😊 Now I’m going to add some Oakleaf’s to round it out.

The heat is on! It’s time to watch your garden grow 😊


Have a good week!

Sunday Reflections…

Does the changing of the seasons change your entire world? If it does, you may be in a seasonal business… Or, you may just be a gardener 🪴

Between watering plants, designing water features and landscapes and running a business, it’s sometimes hard to find the time to attend to your own garden. Sunday’s in the garden are my therapy…

What a beautiful Sunday morning! A dense fog burned off into a gorgeous Sunny day! I for one won’t be wasting time inside watching TV 📺

My “Seasonal Sunday Office” is feeling pretty good 😌

If your wondering what my beautiful photographer is looking at…. 👇🏻
One of our greenhouse frogs 🐸 send me an idea for a great greenhouse frog name 💥 I’ll post it in your honor 😉

“An altered look about the hills;
A Tyrian light the village fills;
A wider sunrise in the dawn;
A deeper twilight on the lawn;
A print of a vermilion foot;
A purple finger on the slope;
A flippant fly upon the pane;
A spider at his trade again;
An added strut in chanticleer;
A flower expected everywhere …”

~  Emily Dickinson, Nature : April

Have a happy day!

Sunday Reflections…

Tending my own garden as the sun comes up on A perfect Sunday morning… It don’t get much better than that 😊 There is something magical and healing in your garden, but you have to spend time there to find it… You have to sweat and toil and you have to sit down within, cool off and relax… Keep it up at all costs! 

One of my places to sit “within my garden” is on my porch garden. All potted annuals and perennials, hanging baskets & vines. It creates a shady little nook with comfortable seating 😊 and a fan to boot. Down the steps on both ends lie my tomatoes, peppers, herbs and more. It’s not a hobby for me. It’s a lifestyle… Have a great Sunday!



“How I love my little garden, where I sit and contemplate.
My perfect piece of paradise inside my garden gate.
Hanging baskets, pretty pots, the flowers are brimming over.
The grass so green, the buttercups, the daisies, and the clover.

Honeysuckle and jasmine giving off its sweet perfume.
Pretty lilies open wide, rose bushes in full bloom.
In summer they stand tall and proud as the buds turn into flowers.
I sit and watch as they all flourish and while away the hours.

I see the little fledglings nesting high up in the trees.
Bees in and out the bushes with their variegated leaves,
Where they gather all the pollen, then soar into the sky.
They’re heading home at speed, returning to the hive.

The melody of the wind chimes as they tinkle in the breeze
Interwoven with gossamer cobwebs, at night the spider weaves.
The sunshine sparkles on the pond where the water lilies grow.
Golden fish and tadpoles swimming safely down below.

It’s all so very peaceful relaxing in the sun
Where the butterflies flutter by having so much fun.
The sun goes down and darkness falls, the moon is big and bold,
Where all that live in the garden have a story to be told.

The little gnomes are watching the pixies and the sprites
Dancing by the wishing well, aglow with fairy lights.
I can sit here contemplating until it’s very late
In this magical piece of paradise, inside my garden gate”

    ~ Susan C Walkinshaw-Kelly

Have a wonderful Sunday! 🙏🏻❤️
