Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflection’s…

A new year and I have been busy planning for it! Business plan, events, pond tours, workshops, jobs, early buys, plant orders and more… I haven’t missed a sunrise or sunset in 2023 yet! No it’s not a resolution… But I do really enjoy watching both 🌞🌅 Here’s a little collage of some of 2023’s best from the Beach!

Now is when the real work begins…

“Sunrise looks spectacular in nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!”

It’s New Years Eve! 🎊 2022 Went By So Fast 💨 I’m Ready to Welcome 2023!

Here we are, standing at the crossroads of another year… So many choices to make, so much work to be done. So many blessings to count and so much more to look forward too! A wise lady told me that ’Every day above ground is a Blessing!’ 

So many opportunities lay ahead! So many choices… Here’s to a Happy New Year! 🎈

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

~ Robert Frost

I hope we all have a wonderful evening closing out 2022! And here’s to a HUGE 2023! 💥

“Should auld acquaintance be Forgot and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be Forgot and days of auld lang syne? For auld lang syne, my dear,for auld lang syne, We’ll take a cup of kindness yet,for auld lang syne.”    

 ~ Robert Burns


HAPPY NEW YEAR!
