Thats a VERY important question! I mean, literally half of every day is either going into or coming out of darkness… The vast majority of us work during “business hours”, which means most of our free time is in the evening or at night! 🌙 So, let me ask you again, Do you enjoy your Garden at Night?!

Wow right! imagine something like this beautiful Waterfall being the ‘focal point’ of your Garden… I bet you would spend a lot more time outside away from the TV 🌕

This weekend there is a very Unique Opportunity to get outside, under a Full Moon, and tour some Gorgeous, well lit Gardens! All of them include beautiful Water Features and extensive lighting and Landscaping. Some with Outdoor Kitchens, Fire pits, Patios, Pergolas and more.

This is the best ”Date Night” of the year! You tour around in the privacy of your own vehicle, at your own pace. Then explore these beautiful Private Gardens. Its 100% self guided and the directions are easy to follow along with.

After your eyes are opened to this ”Nighttime World”, you will never be the same 😊❤️

Waterfall Wednesday Night | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I LOVE my Waterfalls 24/7! This time of the year about the only time I get out there to enjoy it is in the cooler evening/night hours. It’s so HOT! But that’s ok, I really prefer the night Pond anyway 😊 In fact, in about a months time, we are going to host a Moonlight Pond Tour. It will introduce you to the beauty and Magic of a well lit Aquatic Landscape!

Here’s to some Moonlight Magic 🌝

Next months Full Harvest Moon is Coming!

Throwback Thursday | Water Lilies | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Yep, it’s #throwbackthursday once again and this memory just popped up in my Facebook feed and provided the perfect inspiration. Aquatic plants are some of my favorites! And this beauty is hard to beat ❤️
Say hello to – Nymphaea ‘Red Flare’

This night-blooming lily produces magnificent magenta red, flowers that are held high above the waters’ surface. These fragrant blooms can stand 7″ to 10″ tall 🤩 Did I mention that they also bloom at night? Yes, the blooms open in late evening and bloom all night and into the early morning. A total show stopper!

Red flair is one of the tropical lilies that I always try to procure for my own Pond. They achieve the “trifecta”… Beautiful, Fragrant and a Night Bloomer! Boom 💥

Well, that’s my offering for Throwback Thursday!

Have a great evening 😊
