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

Some people call it Hump Day, I prefer #Waterfallwednesday! This old photo popped up today in my memories so I thought i would use it as my Waterfall Wednesday offering.

This one has been around a while! We built it during a rainwater harvesting class here in Jackson around 15 years ago. Its still running strong today!

I love the sound of the waterfalls! But I also love the brass statue! It really adds a nice effect to this small backyard landscape.

Today marks the half way point of the week… Its all downhill from here 😊

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

I always look forward to sharing a waterfall video with everyone on Monday, and today is no different! This beautiful Pondless Waterfall was on Saturday Nights Moonlight Pond Tour and I just had to share this one with you…

There is just something about a Waterfall that grabs you… Not just the movement, the sound! The splash, the Burble… And at night, the lighting! The accent lighting puts such a focus on the beauty of the flowing, splashing, burbling water… It’s Magical!

If you missed Saturday nights event and wish you hadn’t, stay tuned in. Something else is in the works thats gonna be Awesome!

Have a great week!

Throwback Thursday | Pickled Peppers 🌶 & Guitar 🎸 Pickin’

This popped up as a Facebook Memory today and it’s very timely in more ways than one!

It’s pepper picking time! It’s also pepper pickling time if you have a bumper crop!

My friend and fellow guitar 🎸 picker Willi X Evans posted this on Facebook 7 years ago and it popped up as a memory this morning! Perfect timing in more ways than 1! Not only is it pickling season, it’s Moonlight Pond Tour 🌝 season as well! And Willi has played the music at more Pond Tours than any other band or musician! 💥 Come see Willi X – Live! at Carters Nursery Saturday, September 18th. For our Annual

  • Moonlight Pond Tour!

Here’s the Video 👇🏻

By the way, here’s Willi’s recipe for the Pickled Peppers 🌶

So here goes –
INGREDIENTS

Makes 4 — 8 ounce jars

4 8 ounce mason or ball jars with lids and seals

Approximately15 jalapeno peppers sliced

Approximately 8 Cayenne peppers sliced

2 Cups white vinegar

1 Cup water

1 tsp pickling or Kosher salt

4 Cloves of garlic

INSTRUCTIONS

Sterlize jars and lids by placing them carefully in a pot of boiling water for at least 15 minutes
Use tongs to remove jars and lids and place on a clean towel to dry
Prepare peppers by slicing them or piercing them
Make the brine by combining the vinegar, water and salt to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes
Meanwhile place the peppers in each of the 4 jars filling them up and place one clove of garlic in each
Pour brine over peppers in each jar (should be about 1/2 cup per jar)
Secure lids tightly on each jar
Bring water to boil in sterilizing pot again and submerge the 4 jars in pot — covering jars about 1/2 way
Let boil for about 30 minutes
Carefully remove jars from water with tongs and set to cool
As jars cool, listen for the lids to snap indicating a secure seal — if jar doesn’t seal, store in refrigerator
Wait a least a week before opening properly sealed jar and refrigerate after opening”

Have a great #Throwbackthursday!

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

Yes, time is flying by 🌬 So you must be having FUN 🤩 I know I am! It’s Springtime in Tennessee… Here we are at the halfway point of yet another week. Some people call it hump day 🐫… I call it #waterfallwednesday! 💥

A wonderful client sent this to me the other morning. We installed this waterfall over a decade ago and it’s still looking great! Add in her beautiful landscape and awesome pool… It’s a jaw dropper 😳

When you have a Waterfall in your backyard, every day is waterfall day! 💥

Here’s a closeup from under the bridge. I just LOVE this Water Feature! ❤️

Enjoy this beautiful day! And try to enjoy a Waterfall today! After all, “It’s #waterfallwednesday”! 💥

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Germantown, TN

Yes, it’s already #waterfallwednesday again… And I wanted to share this beautiful little waterfall. Is it a natural Waterfall? Or, did I design and build it? In other words… “Is it live or is it Memorex”?

Drum 🥁 Roll… We actually designed and built this one several years ago in a shady backyard in Germantown Tennessee. Boom 💥

That is why it’s so important to use specimen quality stone! Native Aquatic Plants are a big part as well! And don’t leave out drift wood, mossy stumps and the like, they make it so much more ‘Naturally Beautiful’!

Enjoy your day! #waterfallwednesday!

Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Waterfall memories, ie; throwbacks, are pretty Awesome! When people ask me, Mark, what do you do? I usually say “I design & build Waterfalls!” And, I LOVE my job! ❤️Now, as we get ready to move into another season, I realize that I’ve been doing this for 32 years! That’s a LOT of Waterfalls!

So for my Throwback today, here’s a link to an older collection of Water Feature Pictures that we have Designed & Built through the years. This is just the tip of the iceberg of what we have designed and built at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio, but its a diverse collection. Have a Great #Throwbackthursday! Check the link 👇🏻


Enjoy your day! I can actually see the weekend from here 😊

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!

Sent Memories | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Are you on Facebook? If not, you might find this interesting 🤔 If you are, then you know of what I speak… Everyday I get a picture that I personally posted, usually years ago, it just pops up in my home feed, it’s labeled as a “Facebook Memory” and it tells you exactly how many years ago that you originally posted it. Then you get to look back through the comments and likes, and if you want you can share it as a Story or to your feed and friends. At first, I didn’t know what to think about it, but I have grown to enjoy them and I usually share them again. 

These pictures of our work that I have posted from years ago, just pop up as a “Facebook memory”… Actually pretty cool 😎 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Today’s memory was 3 years old. A couple of days ago it was a 7 year memory that I had forgotten about… 

What do YOU think 🤔 about the way social media like Facebook has changed our daily lives? How, if any, has it changed yours? 

“Memories, brought to you by Facebook”… 

Screenshot of what it looks like on your device. Do you look at these? Do you find it charming, or invasive? Just asking…

I have grown to think that it helps me share what I do. Our work at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio is so visual! It’s hard to describe what we build so that you can form an accurate picture in your minds eye… So that picture you see, of what your backyard could actually look like, is worth a thousand words… 

I’m writing this outside and it’s starting to rain  🌧 I hope you enjoyed it 😊

Have a Great Weekend!
