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.”

Throwback Thursday

A timely throwback memory. My cousin Kim is in town for graduations and a few other things, so I pulled up a few old pics and made a little collage of Kim and family down through the years. Cousins are very special family! We are as close as siblings and even better friends than if we were brothers and sisters 😊

It’s so nice getting to spend some time with family that you grew up with. Lifelong memories ❤️

Here’s to #Throwbackthursday!

May The 4th. Be With You!

And just think, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo’!

St. Patrick’s Day ☘️

“Yeah, it’s St. Paddy’s Day. Everyone’s Irish tonight.” ~ Norman Reedus

“Be still and know that I am. Be still and know. Be still. Be.” ~ St. Patrick

Have a great day! And stay safe on this stormy St. Patrick’s Day ☘️

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back. 

May the sun shine warm upon your face; 

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, 

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Blue Moonbeams 🌚 & Trick or Treat Dreams 🎃

Blue Moon Tonight! First one since March 31st., 2018! Oh, and it’s on Halloween 🎃 which Makes it very special! The last Halloween with a Blue Moon was all the way back in 1944! We were fighting WW II! 💥 Oh, and it’s SATURDAY! When you combine these things with the fact that it’s also a Saturday, now we’re talking very rare! In fact, there won’t be another like it for 250 years!

Halloween night and the moon 🌝 is Full! It’s also a Blue Moon 🌚

Oh, and I almost forgot… One more factor to consider… Tonight is the night we roll back the clocks ⏰ an hour! Yep, it’s “Fall Back for Daylight Savings” tonight!

Set your clocks back tonight…

So if you add that factor to the Blue Moon, on Halloween 🎃 on a Saturday night – You blow the roof off the timeline of WHEN this will happen again! I’ve been searching and I don’t believe this exact sequence of events has EVER happened before?! Daylight Savings was started in 1918… That led to the question, WHEN will this all line up like this and happen again? I couldn’t completely track it down or do the exact math… But, if and when it does, it will be well over 1,000 years from now! 😳

Pretty cool huh 😎

Blue Moonbeams & Trick or Treat Dreams 🎃

Have a FUN evening! 🎃⏰💥🌚😱👀

Oh, Go Vote Tuesday! Use it, or loose it!

Happy Halloween 👻 🎃

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Happy Halloween! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Don’t eat too much candy tonight kids 🎃

“When the spooks have a midnight jamboree/They break it up with fiendish glee/The ghosts are bad but the one that’s cursed/Is the headless horseman; he’s the worst/That’s right, he’s a fright on Halloween night! When he goes a joggin’ ‘cross the land/Holding his noggin in his hand/Demons take one look and groan/And they hit the road to parts unknown/Beware, take care he rides alone!”

~ The Headless Horseman, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow.

Happy Halloween! 🎃

Happy Halloween!
