Carter's Water Garden


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!

Sunday Reflections…

For the first time in years I slept past 8am on Sunday morning. It was good sleep 😴 but… Sleeping in, ain’t what it used to be 😊

Brunch is on!

sausage and onions with fresh made pancakes, whipped butter and warm maple 🍁 syrup, over medium eggs 🍳 and oolong tea ☕️

Today is Super Bowl Sunday! Always a fun day! And a milepost in the seasons for my business! For Carter’s Nursery, Tomorrow is Super Bowl Monday! A day when we start LOTS of seasonal Landscape chores… So I got that goin for me 😊

Question- Who are you pulling for in the big game? For Jo and I, we got Brady’s team – The Buccaneers 🏴‍☠️ 🏈 The biggest reason, besides the fact that Brady is probably the best ever at his position (Quarterback), is that The night that Jo had our son Jacob, was the very night that Brady made his first mark on the NFL winning a snowy game against The Raiders to move forward into the Super Bowl – His 1st. Super Bowl win! Can you say “Tuck Rule”… 😳. She laid there, in labor, and watched the entire game with me! At times of serious pain, she would ask, what’s going on? What’s the score? How’s Brady doing? A football 🏈 fan was born! And, a beautiful, bouncing baby boy to boot! Boom💥 Yes, that’s 6 B’s in a row! Thank you, thank you very much!

No matter the outcome of today’s game though, we will have fun watching it!

Have a great Sunday! And, Go Bucs!🏈💥

Groundhog Day! | Shadow or No – Spring IS Coming!

What a beautiful, sunny morning! 🌞 It’s Groundhog Day! Guess what… I saw my shadow! You know what that means, yep, I need to loose a few pounds… 

You think that groundhog is chunky… Beware of your own shadow…

Old Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning as well… What does that mean? Well, if you trust the worlds most famous rodent prognosticator, it means 6 more weeks of Winter 🥶

If ground-hog day was bright and fair, The beast came forth, but not to stay; His shadow turned him to his lair, Where six weeks more, he dormant lay Secure in subterranean hold— So wondrous weatherwise was he— Against six weeks of ice and cold, Which, very certain, there would be… ~H.L. Fisher, “Popular Superstitions,”

Folks, no matter what the weather rat 🐀 says, Spring is still March 20th. this year no matter what! And that’s good with me! That means I still have time to get all the February chores done. Still time to enjoy a fire or three with my family. Still time to enjoy the pre-Spring landscape – Before Spring really hits! To me this is a reminder – Spring is Coming! Rejoice & Be Happy! 😉

What a beautiful morning! Sunny ☀️ with a bluebird sky. It’s Groundhog Day & I saw my shadow… You know what that means, yep, I need to loose a few pounds 😮

If ground-hog day was bright and fair,
The beast came forth, but not to stay;
His shadow turned him to his lair,
Where six weeks more, he dormant lay
Secure in subterranean hold—
So wondrous weatherwise was he—
Against six weeks of ice and cold,
Which, very certain, there would be…

I may have seen my shadow, but old Punxsutawney Phil did not! What does that mean? Well, if you trust the worlds most famous rodent prognosticator, it means Spring is coming early!!! Boom 💥 What have I been saying – Spring IS Coming! 💐🍾🌈

Ok, back in the real 🌎 I have a game to prepare for! My team didn’t make it this year  (❤️ Titans) so I’m rooting for the Chiefs… The hard parts gonna be finding Super Bowl snacks that help slim my shadow 😎

Groundhog Day made me think about MY shadow… I guess it’s Crudité for Super Bowl snacks 😊

Have a great day! Go Chiefs! And here’s to an early Spring!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! And, WOW what a difference a day makes… Just a couple of days ago we were freezing & talking about record lows, but today we might see 70! I literally had to smack a bug off of me yesterday evening! It feels like a Spring morning 🌞 Maybe Punxsutawney Phil was right? Spring is coming sooner than later! 🙏🏻

Year after year these daffodils are a sure sign of Spring. It won’t be long now until I get to see them bloom again. My Grandma planted them & they are special ❤️😊

I’ve already started my preparations for the season & believe me, I’m ready!! The Super Bowl plays today 🏈 then, it’s on to Spring!

“He knows no winter, he who loves the soil,
For, stormy days, when he is free from toil,
He plans his summer crops, selects his seeds
From bright-paged catalogues for garden needs.
When looking out upon frost-silvered fields,
He visualizes autumn’s golden yields;
He sees in snow and sleet and icy rain
Precious moisture for his early grain;
He hears spring-heralds in the storm’s ‘ turmoil­
He knows no winter, he who loves the soil.”

~ Sudie Stuart Hager

 

Have a blessed day!

PS: Go Patriots! 🏈
