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

This past couple of weeks tested us all a bit. Winter in all its glory… But now Spring is in our sights! And believe it or not, it’s coming quickly! So this morning I wanted to try to reassure you a bit with a video from early Spring last year. We are only a few weeks away from when this video was taken 😊

I can’t wait till I get to feed my babies again! And I can only imagine what they are thinking right about now…

Enjoy this little moment of zen! And just know that – Spring is Coming!

Having a Waterfall Feature in your backyard truly gives you 4 seasons of interest. Each season brings its own magic 🪄 late yesterday evening this little video was taken of my own personal Waterfall. I LOVE every season, but the ice sculptures of Winter ❄️ are just plain Magical!

I hope this video brought a little Zen to your morning!😊

Have a great day! Stay warm!

Super Bowl Monday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Well, I hate to say “I told you so”…. But, Boom 💥 Brady won and won BIG! 💥 What a great, well played game! I’m not a big talker when it comes to football 🏈, but man, the pushback and BS I’ve gotten over my backing of the “old guy”… Vindication! I knew he and the Buccaneers had this in the bag 💼 They have become quite the team. They worked hard and won the prize. That’s something to be proud of! Hats off to the Bucs!

For me, as soon as Super Bowl Sunday is over – Monday morning starts my Spring preparation’s in earnest. I refer to it as Super Bowl Monday! Plans for the season, plant orders, clean up at the nursery, pond services get started as soon as weather allows, etc…  The Nursery is open Wednesday through Saturday for your Gardening and Shopping pleasure. We have – Mulch, Top Soil, Sand, Gravel, Bulk Stone, Palletized Stone, Pond Supplies and much more available for purchase! Our new Boutique/Gift Shop is open as well! Gifts for any occasion are available, particularly, the upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration ❤️

We are putting together a list of Water Gardens & Koi Ponds to service right now, so feel free to give me a call to get on the Pond Maintenance Schedule – 731-424-2206.
PS: Our schedule is filling fast!

Football season is over! Now, it’s time for the real show to begin – The run up to Spring time in Tennessee!

Here’s to the coming Spring!

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

Good Monday Morning! And “Merry Christmas”! 🎄🎅🏻 Only a few days left before the big day and tensions are running high… Here’s a little something that always helps to lower stress and tension for me – A Waterfall!

The mossy stone, the natural driftwood and oh that sound… All I have to do is sit down with my coffee and sip while I listen to the waterfalls splash and gurgle and all that tension just melts away. It’s the best Sound Therapy that I know of! Can you say Zen…

Have a wonderful day! And a very Merry Christmas 🎄

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

The Christmas season is upon us! And, if your lucky, the Christmas Spirit is coursing through your veins 🙏🏻🎄🎅🏻 If not, if the Spirit of the Season’ hasn’t touched you yet… Watch this short, simple explanation of what the meaning of Christmas really is all about 👇🏻

I don’t know about you, but it’s not really Christmas until we watch this 😊 Crazy how a little cartoon from years past carries so much weight!

Nothing like a little ‘Nostalgic Christmas Zen’!

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

It’s the last day of November 😳 Tomorrow we enter December, final month of 2020… I need to take a moment to let my mind catch up… A little moment of Zen will help 😊

We just finished this one up and plugged it in. This beautiful Pondless Waterfall will provide years of ‘Zen’ for the new owners 😊

When my mind gets cluttered or I need to slow down for a few minutes, I go out by the Waterfall and sit in my favorite spot and just listen. Within minutes, I feel the relaxation wash over me and I feel better. It’s Amazing what a little old Waterfall can do for your piece of mind 😊

Have a great Monday morning!

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

I just heard it was Monday morning… WOW! Already?! Got anymore of that weekend… 😂

In the Halloween 🎃 Spirit, here’s a little video I took for y’all a few days back. The water in Kentucky Lake is down to Winter pool, which exposes lots of beaches and banks and little island areas for birds to land. I just happened upon a large group of Buzzards 😱 They were hoping around and eating something… I drifted up toward them quiet as possible, I even killed the engine as you will hear in the video… It’s kinda funny, the second I pushed the record video button, they jumped and started flying off 🦅

But they didn’t go far. Watch as they circle and start landing in that big old dead tree in the distance… A “Buzzard roost”.

Question : Do you know what a large group of Buzzards is called?

Answer: A Wake…

Have a great Monday Morning!

Happy Halloween 🎃 👻😱
