Carter's Water Garden


Evening Zen | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I love the evening Garden! Especially in the Summer ❤️ I usually feature a water feature in my ’Zen’ posts… This evenings is a little different than the normal Water Element that I focus on… It has been so hot lately, and dry! We are running the Low Volume Sprinklers in the evenings and at night in different parts of the garden. This garden statue caught our eye 👁 this evening. The lighting has recently kicked on and the misty sprinklers behind this hand carved stone angel, really create a cool effect. Very calming, very cooling and very ’Zen’ on a warm Summer night in July…

I LOVE Summertime! ❤️ Enjoy your night!

Sunday Reflections…

Good Morning! And, ”Happy Vernal Equinox! I’ve been hollering ’Spring is Coming’ since February, and finally – here we are 🌼 SPRING!

Belle has been patIently waiting for Spring and the Flowers that follow 😊

Yesterday we held our annual Spring Workshop and Customer Appreciation Day and so many people came out! We talked gardening, water gardening, Koi, and more. We ate some Wonderful Craft-made Pizzas 🍕 and saw some beautiful Art Displayed by a wonderful local artist – Matt Brown.

Featured Artist Matt Brown and two Lovely Ladies ❤️
Our local news station even came out and interviewed us and shot some video.

The Sun finally popped out late in the day and we saw the Full Moon after dark 🌝

We found Spring by the light of the 🌕

Now that Spring is here, its time to go to work!

“Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfill.

~ Robert Frost, A Prayer in Spring.

Y’all Have a Beautiful Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

Good day to everyone! Just finished a great brunch and sat down to finish my Blog that I started late last night… We finished up our last event of the season last night, and it was a FUN one! A local artist and friend for over 30+ years, Matt Brown came to the nursery last night with a literal truck load of art and paintings and we set up our Nursery as his Gallery of Art 🖼 We called it ’Art in the Garden’ and it was a very unique and a very special evening. We even set up a ’Blacklight Room’ in the Koi Shack to showcase some of Matts unique pieces. I’ll tell the rest of the story with a few pictures of last night.

Matt Brown (featured artist) and Charlotte Powell Vaughn (his mom) and Conor McGregor… 😊

What a great evening! Matt and I have been friend’s for many years now, Maybe its because we both work with our hands to make unique, artistic creations? Our mediums are very different, but I think his Artwork within the gardens and by my Waterfalls was pretty Awesome! And it brought a bunch of people out to enjoy a night of Art and enjoyment, another win-win!

PS: We are gonna do this again! 💥

“Each of us are flowers in the garden of life we bloom, 
We all bring a different light to brighten the daily gloom. 
We all posess great potential to inspire our fellow man, 
To offer peace and love is a choice we all should plan. 
We can each bring joy to a life filled with sadness, 
Just through a soft touch or word spoken in gladness. 
We can also bring peace to those with a troubled mind, 
Bring hope to a broken heart joy from the daily grind. 
For every flower has something beautiful to share, 
That has special meaning to someone, sometime, somewhere, 

But our time is short, just like a season, 
As autumn advances with purpose and reason. 
We all have these gifts and we must take a chance, 
If we spread peace and love it’s the garden we enhance… 

Enhance the garden… 
Spread the love… The peace will follow…”

~ Cosmic Dreamer

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
