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

Yesterday was the first day of Daylight Savings… We “Sprang Forward”… SO, we got out and cleaned up the landscape a bit, raked leaves & had a nice bonfire that we used to control burn the leafs over the evening. I stayed out till after dark watching the fire till it all burned out. Watching a fire burn is very similar to watching a waterfall in my opinion. It almost hypnotizes you! Its quiet and relaxing too, very… Zen! 



That’s why I have a fire-pit! I just love to sit out with friends and family by a nice fire 🔥 

A fire pit is a great way to enjoy the evening and watch the sun go down! Yesterday it helped get rid of some fall leaves too 🍁 

Have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

I got up early and came out to get a good view of the last Sunrise 🌞of Summer. Yes, today is the last official day of Summer 😮 Tomorrow is the Autumnal Equinox, the 1st official day of Fall…

It’s been a HOT summer! Cooler weather sounds great!

I Love Summer! I always mourn its passing… But, it’s been so Hot this year, the cooler weather is a welcome thing. Football, cookouts, fire pits, Fall color, frost on the pumpkin 🎃 Bring It On!

Here’s a link to more info on the 1st day of Fall  👇🏻

Fall Equinox – When Is the First Day of Fall? (2019)

 

“Our fear of death is like our fear that summer will be short, but when we have had our swing of pleasure, our fill of fruit, and our swelter of heat, we say we have had our day.”

~ John Donne, 1620

 

Have a great ‘Last day of Summer Sunday’!

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🔥

9 Tuesday’s Tiil Christmas? 🎃 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Did you know that Christmas is on a Tuesday this year? I didn’t either until the other day while running into a store for a quick purchase I had a lady say to me “Only 10 Tuesday’s left before Christmas”!

Don’t get so far ahead of yourself that you forget about today!

It seems to get earlier every year now… Blaring Christmas music in early October? Candy canes & sleighs 🛷…

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to carve a few more pumpkins 🎃 & go to a few more bonfires 🔥 before I start hanging Christmas stockings! Here’s to enjoying each season on its own merits 😊

Jeees! I haven’t even been to the Haunted Farm yet… Turn off jingle bells and let’s enjoy a happy Halloween or a Fall Fest… 

ps: Only 9 Tuesday’s till Christmas 😂

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!
