Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

When we get these cool, starry nights, there is nothing better than a Fire Pit to sit around and enjoy. We designed and built this one a couple of years back. I LOVE it! 🔥

Outdoor living is good year round if you do it right 😉

I hope this little video brings some Zen to your Monday!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Today is the first day of Fall! The autumnal equinox… Equinox of course means equal, today the night and day have an equal split of time. There is something very Zen like about the changing of the seasons.

The weather has dried considerably & some trees are starting to defoliate, like the Birch leaves you see in this short video  You even get a glimpse of a pumpkin 🎃 Embrace the Fall, for it is here…

Time for a good Bonfire 🔥 Are you ready?!

Bonfire Time!

“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous a– as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”

~ Stephen King

Have a Great day!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

I try to always post a short video on Monday morning… Usually a waterfall or stream with a nice sound. Something that releases stress & gives a relaxed “Zenlike” feel. But this morning I chose a crackling fire 🔥 Why? Because we have gone from a wet Spring, to a freezing cold winter morning! 17 degrees out there! Brrrr! I hope this crackeling fire warms you up a bit & gives you a nice feeling. A feeling of Zen to keep you focused and warm 😊

A fireplace is much like a Waterfall, you can get lost just watching and listening to it ❤️

Have a Great Day! Stay warm🔥

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

When you have your own Fire Pit, every night becomes an outdoor event 😊 And when it’s a gas burning Fire Pit 🔥 there’s no wood to haul & no clean-up afterwards either! Just ‘click’ and a perfect fire every time! Here’s a little slo-mo teaser of a nice Custom Stone Fire Pit we built.

 

Here’s to a Great Monday!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

We had a great day Saturday at the Fall Fest! We kept the fire pit 🔥 going until well after the festivities were over for our own enjoyment 😊 I went back out late to make sure the fire was out & stirred the coals up good & the glowing coals just mesmerized me… No telling what you might see in those glowing coals.:. The fire pit sits right by the pond so you can really hear the waterfalls too. So relaxing, so… Zen

Have a great day!
