Throwback Thursday | Rescue Cat Edition | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I always enjoy looking for a good #Throwbackthursday pic to reflect on. This one today really fits the bill –

This is Little Paw in a Throwback pic from this date 10 years ago… She is a rescue cat that we got from a local rescue friend many years ago. Our upcoming fund raiser for the Jackson Animal Care Center really clicked when this picture popped up on Facebook this morning ❤️

Little Paw is still a VIP in our daily lives all these years later… I Love my pets! and I Love Throwback Thursday!

Who knows, you might decide to adopt a pet after the Pond Tour as well?

Have a great #throwbackthursday !

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

What a Beautiful, Hot 🥵 Day! Early Summer in the South… As you may, or may not know, we are getting ready for our annual Summer Pond Tour. My Nursery and home is on the Pond Tour, with several other properties, so I’ve been out in the evenings and early morning hours straitening up a bit, adding a plant here and there and doing some photography. I thought I would share one of my Water Gardens with you that is on the Pond Tour. This is a late evening shot right at dark, probably my favorite time of the day this time of the year.

This is my oldest Pond at the Nursery. My Grandmother Kay lived in the house next to the Pond, so I always called it ’Grandma’s Pond’ ❤️

This little Pond sits right between the house and the Koi Shack. There is a Blue Stone patio on one side and a bench on the other… Perfect 😊

When you walk out the back door of the Koi Shack, your right by Grandma’s Pond’. Feel free to sit a spell…

I hope you are having the best Waterfall Wednesday ever! #waterfallwednesday

PS: Come by during business hours and see Grandmas’s Pond in person. Or, come see it (and Many others ) Saturday, June 25th. on our Upcoming Summer Pond Tour! Heres a short video with info for ya’ 👇🏻

Have a Great Day!

We’ve been straitening up around the Ponds getting ready for the coming pond tour on June 25th. I always tell my clients that when I install their Water Feature, they actually get 2 features! The Daytime Water Feature, & the Nighttime one… Me, I LOVE the nightlife!

I can sit by my Nighttime Pond and feed my Koi and listen to the Waterfalls and frogs 🐸 till I fall to sleep 😴 Its so relaxing and hypnotic…

Waterfall Wednesday was actually Waterfall Tuesday night 😊

The frogs are in full force right now! It literally sounds like the TN River in my yard 🐸

Enjoy Waterfall Wednesday! And enjoy your Waterfalls! And if you want to find out more about a Waterfall of your own, come by Carters Nursery Pond & Patio, we will show you the ropes! There is also an Awesome Pond Tour coming up on Saturday, June 25th that will introduce you to the wonderful world of Waterfalls 😊

Sunday Reflections…

The morning after is real… 🤫 I was the only one up in the whole house most of the morning… I don’t know what it is, but i cant “sleep in”. I’m just drawn up and then outside in the morning 🌞 But truth be told, I am pretty worn out too… Last night we hosted our annual Moonlight Pond Tour for the 17th time. And it was such a beautiful night!

Jo got a great black & white shot last night of the emerging moon across the Pond. It was a wonderful night.

We didn’t get through talking with folks, closing up and blowing out all the Tiki Torches and candles till around 12:30 last night, which is pretty late for an old Pond Guy and Gal 😊 But then when we got inside the house, were wide awake… so we had coffee and cake… ☕️🍰 Whew, great day and what a great night! but then… The Morning After 😒 I may need a nap 🥱

We met this cool little dude last night. He was with his folks and was just in love with the whole idea of having a Pond with streams and waterfalls in your own yard! His excitement was almost contagious!
I LOVE this Pondless Waterfall!
The Moonlight Pond Tour is a Fund Raiser for our local shelter – The Jackson Animal Care and Adoption Center. Thanks to all that came out last night and made a contribution!
The Moon and the Clouds made for a Magical sky last night!

Thank You! to everyone who came out to support the cause! And a BIG ’Thank You’ to the homeowners who hosted the tour! ❤️ Its an honor and a privilege to be surrounded by such Awesome and caring people 🙏🏻

Enjoy your day!

“Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning …”

~ William Wordsworth
