Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

Does the changing of the seasons change your entire world? If it does, you may be in a seasonal business… Or, you may just be a gardener 🪴

Between watering plants, designing water features and landscapes and running a business, it’s sometimes hard to find the time to attend to your own garden. Sunday’s in the garden are my therapy…

What a beautiful Sunday morning! A dense fog burned off into a gorgeous Sunny day! I for one won’t be wasting time inside watching TV 📺

My “Seasonal Sunday Office” is feeling pretty good 😌

If your wondering what my beautiful photographer is looking at…. 👇🏻
One of our greenhouse frogs 🐸 send me an idea for a great greenhouse frog name 💥 I’ll post it in your honor 😉

“An altered look about the hills;
A Tyrian light the village fills;
A wider sunrise in the dawn;
A deeper twilight on the lawn;
A print of a vermilion foot;
A purple finger on the slope;
A flippant fly upon the pane;
A spider at his trade again;
An added strut in chanticleer;
A flower expected everywhere …”

~  Emily Dickinson, Nature : April

Have a happy day!

A Day In The Life Of Mike… Halloween 🎃 is Coming!

We just started watching Horror films for the Halloween 🎃 season. Guess where we always start… You guessed it – Mikey Myers…

“They tell me that most of us get more conservative as we get older. It makes sense, we get married, have kids, we earn more $$ and have more to conserve! We also set up routines that we follow throughout our daily lives – exercise, eating, checking email, etc.. So I got to wondering if everyone across all boundaries followed suit?”

Check this out! – A day in the life of Mike

Mike likes his morning brew! You wouldn’t believe how cranky he gets if he ain’t had his Java!!’

Getting ready in the morning has become a ritual…

The old “morning constitutional” – With all the daily chores ahead – this is a great time to do a little multitasking & check my email & texts!

I don’t care who you are, ya’ gotta stay in shape!

Believe me folks, the “middle age spread” is REAL! Gotta eat right and do my crunches!

There’s always something to do…

Guest who drew “bake sale” at the school fundraiser… Red Velvet Cake is the perfect choice!

Don’t forget to take a break now and again! All work and no play…

I need a little “Me time” every now and again – nothing better than kicking off my shoes 👠 and enjoying a good show and a cold drink!

You might even think the monotonous life we all leed has tamed & subdued Mike to the point that homocide is just off the menu… ?

Oh well… You know it’s hard for a leopard to change his spots 🎃

Happy Halloween y’all! 🎃

It makes sense, we get married, have kids, we earn more $$ and have more to conserve! We also set up routines that we follow throughout our daily lives  – exercise, eating, checking email, etc.. So I got to wondering if everyone across all boundaries followed suit?

You know how it is, coffee gets you started, then you gotta get ready for the day!

If I don’t stretch and exercise, my whole day is off…

Believe me folks, the “middle age spread” is REAL! Gotta eat right and do my crunches!

This time of the year with school & church festivities, there is always something to contribute 🎃

It’s hard to catch a minute to just… Relax
