Carter's Water Garden

Sunday Reflections…

Spring is my favorite season for many reasons. It’s also my busiest season for many of the same reasons. Coming out of Winter, everyone emerges from their hibernation and blossoms 🌺 The phone starts ringing, and I’m out designing Waterfalls and Landscapes 6 and maybe even 7 days a week… And, I love ❤️ it!
But, right about mid May every year, I look up and realize that Spring is running away… Keeping the work/life balance is tough sometimes 😊 Even on a Sunday Morning.

IF you haven’t, get out there now and grab some Spring before we transition to Summer… It’s right around the corner 🌞

“By the time one is eighty, it is said, there is no longer a tug of war in the garden with the May flowers hauling like mad against the claims of the other months.  All is at last in balance and all is serene.  The gardener is usually dead, of course.”

Do YOU Believe in New Years Resolutions?


Res-o-lu-tion / reze’looSH(e)n / noun   

A firm decision to do or not to do something. Synonyms : Intention. Decision. Aim. Plan

Goals are important! But, IF you want it to stick – you better have a plan!

New Years bring out the best intentions in all of us I think. BUT, old sayings ring true… “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”!

Saving money and loosing weight are the top 2 things people are planning to do this year! BUT guess what? Less than 10% of people actually succeed with their resolutions… WOW!

Last year my resolution was to blog everyday in 2018! It hasn’t been easy, but I worked at it everyday & I did it 😊 So I know that you can achieve your goals too!

We ALL want to get better & do better, It’s just in our nature. BUT, to really succeed, you have to have a good plan, written down, that you can go back to and use as a reminder over and over! Nothing comes easy… So my advice is not to get caught up in the New Years Resolution craze! Simply make your plans, carefully and realistically, and work everyday to see them through!

Happy New Year everybody! 🎆
