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

It’s #throwbackthursday! And I ain’t forgot about y’all! I was looking back at my original blog posts from when I first started blogging. I wanted to share this one as my Throwback… It was a published story from the Tennessee Gardener Magazine in 2008. It’s all about Container Water Gardening! I’m still talking and teaching about this wonderful hobby today! 13 years of blog posts later 😳

Even my dogs love ❤️ Aquatic Plants! 😂



Here’s a link to the original story that was published in the Tennessee Gardener Magazine. 👇🏻

Happy Throwback Thursday!

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

I wanted to share a beautiful, private backyard I got to visit last week. The home is surrounded by gardens! Complete with gazebos and pathways and Bubbling Fountains with intimate/hidden little sitting areas (opportunities ❤️) within the outdoor spaces. WOW! I didn’t want to leave 😊 

Then I went to the Backyard Garden 😍 Check it out 👇🏻



We got to help redo this stream and waterfall that your looking down as it flows into the pond. We used the stone they had on site in the “re-configuration” and it turned out beautifully I think. So did they ❤️ 

 This is such A special garden that I asked them if they would like to be included in a future Pond/Garden Tour. She said she would LOVE to be on the tour 😊 So, some of you lucky folks will be able to stroll through what I consider to be one of the best designed and maintained gardens in West Tennessee in the near future.

Enjoy your Monday!
