Carter's Water Garden

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

I started out this morning headed to the post office to get some stamps… You know what happened 😊

In my rush to get started, I forgot what today is & Who it honors…

So, let me say –

‘Have a Great Martin Luther King, Jr. Day’!

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸 God Bless America!

Happy Independence Day!

The Declaration of Independence changed everything! It changed the world! No matter your politics, today is the day for Americans to celebrate and wave Old Glory🇺🇸! I still get choked up when we all stand and put our hands on our hearts and pledge the flag! 

I’m proud of that “Ragged Old Flag”! How about you? #Godblessamerica!

Stars and Stripes Forever!

Freedom’s natal day is here.
Fire the guns and shout for freedom,
See the flag above unfurled!
Hail the stars and stripes forever,
Dearest flag in all the world.

   ~Florence A. Jones


Have a GREAT day! God Bless America!

Sunday Reflections…

Turn off the TV, lay down the smart phone, relax your mind for a little while… I’ve been reflecting on things lately. My life, family, country, God. I for one feel blessed! I am proud to be an American! I took this picture last night as we watched the sunset. Old Glory speaks volumes if you’ll listen…

I want to take a minute and say how thankful I am to be an American! No other country on the face of the earth affords us the rights and privileges that we have as Americans. Stand up! Speak your mind! Hold your ground! God Bless America! 🇺🇸

God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God bless America,
My home sweet home.
God bless America,
My home sweet home.

Good Morning, here’s a health update from Cartercountry… 

“The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has impacted and is continuing to impact our community. At Carters Nursery we value each customer relationship and see no reason, at the present time, to suspend our sales and design operations or otherwise cancel scheduled work. 
We value the health and well-being of all individuals and want to do what we can to protect our employees, customers, and everyone with whom we do business. We are taking the following measures to keep safety as our top priority:
If we don’t shake your hand, please don’t take it as rude. We’re actually not shaking hands out of respect for everyone’s health right now. 
Our office is disinfected for your safety and the safety of our team. Our retail office is open for sales & customer service, However, there is NO public restroom.
Sales representatives are sanitizing their hands before and after client visits.
Our employees will refrain from shaking hands or other close personal contact, with each other and with customers. We will keep an appropriate safe distance during conversations ( 6 feet is the recommendation). 
Employees have been advised to stay home if they feel ill in any way. We are also bringing our own lunches to limit contact with restaurant employees. 
While we typically enter your home to discuss your project, we will not be entering client homes for the next few weeks.
If the timeline on a project that is scheduled or waiting to be scheduled needs to change due to reduction in employee availability or other presently unforeseen circumstances, you will be contacted, and we will work with you to reschedule. We appreciate your understanding and patience. We are monitoring the situation closely by staying informed with the most up-to-date information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local Public Health authorities.”

Thank you, 

Carters Nursery Management.

Thank You,

Washing your hands with warm soapy water for 30 seconds is the best way to stay clean. Hand sanitizer’s help, but washing is the best.

9/11/2001… Never Forget! God Bless America 🇺🇸

A Heavy blow was struck against us all that day.

• 2,977 Americans were Murdered!

• 343 Firefighters died saving others! Many that survived are dying from cancer now at an alarming rate! Thank a Firefighter today…

We survived! We united! We rebuilt!

God Bless America! #neverforget

Its been 18 years now. My wife was pregnant with our son when it happened. He is 17 now and a senior in high school. Many in his class don’t know much of anything about what happened on 9/11! Watch the memorials with them today. Tell them what happened that day & how it made you feel! We owe it to our fallen brothers and sisters to Never Forget! #neverforget !

I still remember this like it was yesterday! My wife was pregnant at work when the towers were struck. Everyone was scared to death of what was next. So many died that day 😢 We can #neverforget

I’m going to hug my wife and my son a little harder today! We are going to talk and discuss what happened and why.

God Bless You All! & God Bless America! 🇺🇸

PS: Here’s a link to local coverage of 9/11 that morning by my old friend Bill Way. If you want a Live account of that day, listen to this…
