Here is a great comparison picture of the same waterfall Summer vs. Winter. BOTH are so Beautiful! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

Another nice shot… or three 😊

My dogs 🐕 Love the snow and ice as much as I do! And what a beautiful look when the snow & ice sculptures appear ❄️❤️


This is Fall Creek Falls in Winter! Beautiful❤️

That’s another wonderful thing about Waterfalls, they are unique and beautiful, year round!

Beautiful, Early Snow ❄️ A Blessing For The Gardener | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Our first snow ❄️ came a bit early this year! Pre-Thanksgiving snow is a rareity in the South for sure 😊 But don’t let it get you down! I try to enjoy the blessings and the opportunity’s as they come!

A snowy landscape is Beautiful! Get out and😊

Snow is very beneficial for our gardens too!  Just a few things that snow does –

  •  Snow brings nutrients to the soil! (Free Fertilizer!) – Nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur & more are captured in the snowfall and are then slowly released into the soil as it melts.
  • Snow ❄️ is a wonderful blanket that insulates and protects the soil and many plants from freezing damage.
  • Snow helps to recharge our groundwater!
  • Snow gives US a break from the garden too😇

Snowy weather brings the birds to your feeders! They come all day to eat, to get a drink and even bathe. I LOVE to photograph birds in our landscape and at our feeders. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Enjoy this beautiful day while it lasts! We got an early taste of winter and for many of us, a day off 😉
Happy Pondering!

Already missing the snow…

The snow has completely melted now… Up until late last night there was still a little bit and I thought it might be “waiting around on some more” 🙂 But, no such luck… I love Spring & Summer! But I also LOVE the beauty of Winter & the snow! I also LOVE the anticipation of Spring that the melting of the snow brings 🙂

Here is my beautiful, blooming Water Garden in Summer. Your welcome to come by and see it during business hours at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Here is the same Water Garden in Winter. No blooms, but still BEAUTIFUL! |Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I Do a Spring/Summer & Fall Water Garden/Pond tour every year. I’ve always wanted to do a Winter Pond/Garden tour too… BUT, I don’t know if it’s possible? To many risk factors perhaps. In any case, I hope you enjoy these pictures and this short video of the Pond.

Happy Pondering!

Snowy Ponds Rock!

We just got a present from mother nature – a 6″ snow on top of a base layer of ice! So most of us are stuck at home… BUT, I can still enjoy my Pond! Ponds are great because even in the Winter on a snowy day you find great beauty and abundant life all around! The birds and flowing water truly feed my soul. Here are a few pictures to enjoy. Imagine looking out your window and seeing one like this in your own backyard!

This is my stream after a 6″ snow. BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE my Water Garden year round!

Thanks & Happy Pondering!
