Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

The Moonlight Luau inspired me to get out again last night and I enjoyed the time after the rain passed. Such a feeling of peace and… Zen.

I LOVE the ‘Nightscape’!

 

I hope this brings a little Zen into your day!

Enjoying The Changing Of The Seasons | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Time flies when your having Fun! And this year has been a good one! We have enjoyed a beautiful, lush Spring season! Perfect in so many ways 😊 Now, we move into Summer & for the last 21 years that has meant 1 thing… Pond Tour Time! 💥

Our annual Summer Pond Tour is always the Saturday after Fathers Day! Saturday, June 22nd is the day! Get your tickets Today!

Friday is the 1st official day of Summer, the Summer Solstice! The Summer Pond Tour is our 1st Event of Summer and we just love it! Check out our video for more details –

We have an after party for all the attendees & home owners at the Nursery. It’s called the ‘Moonlight Luau” & if you purchased a ticket YOU are invited!

We open the gates back up at 8pm and the Moonlight Luau is on! Wear your best “Luau Attire” The Best will receive prizes 😊| Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The Biggest question I have been getting by far is, what’s up with the Luau… Whats it like? What should I wear? Etc… SO, I put together a little primer of sorts… A set of tips to help with communications and etiquette… So, here is a little list for ya’!

#1 – Smile and have a good time 😊 Your in a Garden with music, good food and Wonderful People! And you all just raised money that will help many, many Pets! THANK YOU ALL! Much Respect!

#2 – Dress comfortably & with a “Luau Flair” if possible 😊(see rule #1 – have fun).

#3 – For FUN, let’s try to use the words “Aloha” and “Mahalo”. These are both really special Hawaiian 🌺words and they will both apply tonight.

“Aloha” means many things, but it mostly means Hello and Goodbye 😊

“Mahalo” means Thank You! 🌺

#4 – It’s Good Luck to take your shoes off in the sand, so feel free to venture out on to “Carter Country Beach” 😊

#5 – Appreciate and Enjoy A Lei – At a real Hawaiian 🌺Luau, if someone gives you a Lei, it is a sign of peace and friendship. Its a tradition that goes back to the Polynesian Kings, and Hawaiian etiquette dictates that you accept it and wear it as long as you are in the presence of the one who gives it to you. At our Luau – EVERYONE GETS LEID!” 😂

 

Welcome Summer! See ya’ at the Pond Tour😊

A beautiful evening always draws me out to the Pond 😊 I took this short video as the landscape lighting was kicking on. Under water lights, fountain lights, up lighting on the trees & more… I love the “Nightscape” 😊 I hope it adds  little Zen to your day.

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This time of year I can hardly stay inside the house 😊 My eyes automatically POP open between 4:30 & 5am & that’s when I get outside. This morning I shot this short little video of my Koi eating a “First Light” meal – They were ready! 😊 I hope this brings a little Zen to your day…
