The Art Of “Happy Little Waterfalls” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This is our 31st year of doing business! As you know we design and build Custom Water Features. I tell people all the time that  “Waterfalls are my business, and business is good”! So true 😊 Waterfalls are also my Art. Building waterfalls is so much more than just arranging stones and boulders… You have to have an Artists eye 👁 to build something that resonates. A feature that makes you stop and just, absorb all the elements. When you pull that off, in my opinion, you have become an artist… 

People tell me I’m an artist all the time. So I’m embracing it! Bob Ross hair and all! I ❤️ My Art! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The old saying goes, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”…  My new saying is going to be, 

“I don’t work, I create Happy Little Waterfalls” 😊 Boom 💥 

I ❤️ My Job! I ❤️ My Crew! And – I ❤️ My Art! 

Thanks for all your support the last 31 years! ❤️

Have a Great Day!

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

The days are growing longer and the water temperature is rising! The water temp has hit 50 💥 The Magic #! I think the fish know as well… They are active and asking to eat 😊

They have awoke! Feed me is their call!

I think the fish have been monitoring the thermometer 🌡 The water is up to 50 degrees now 😊 You know what that means! 💥

This is my favorite time of the year! Everything is coming back to life & it’s about time to start feeding the Koi again! There isn’t anything much more Zen than that to me ✌🏻

Enjoy the day! Spring is almost here 😊

My Blog, My Public Journal…

Good morning! Well, it’s official… I’m a Blogger geek! At least that’s what my wife and son say 😊 This is my 3rd year doing a daily Blog & I don’t really see an end in sight.

Most Journals are private, this one is public. Published daily…

Many people write a daily journal or diary to get their thoughts recorded. I guess that’s what my Blog is in a way. It’s part life experience, part education & hopefully partly entertainment for others… In any case, it has become a passion & a daily activity that drives me to type & photograph & record things in my daily life. I’m not in any way comparing myself to one of my favorite writers, Thoreau, but I love and identify with this quote of his 👇🏻

“My Journal is that of me which else would spill over and run to waste, gleanings from the field which in action I reap. I must not live for it, but in it for the gods. They are my correspondent, to whom daily I send off this sheet postpaid. I am clerk in their counting-room, and at evening transfer the account from my day-book to ledger. It is as a leaf which hangs over my head in the path. I bend the twig and write my prayers on it; then letting it go, the bough springs up and shows the scrawl to heaven. As if it were not kept shut in my desk, but were as public a leaf as any in nature. It is papyrus by the riverside; it is vellum in the pastures; it is parchment on the hills. I find it everywhere as free as the leaves which troop along the lanes in autumn. The crow, the goose, the eagle carry my quill, and the wind blows the leaves as far as I go. Or, if my imagination does not soar, but gropes in slime and mud, then I write with a reed. “
~ Henry David Thoreau

Have a great Tuesday!

 

PS: I’m off to speak for a Garden Club ❤️ Wish me luck!

Hump Day Koi Fix | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This time of year I get to really missing feeding time! The weather has been warm & the Koi very active, but it’s just not time… So I thought I would post a nice little video of the Koi swimming and the aquatic plants flourishing as a memory/dream of the coming season 😊

Hump Day Dreaming 😎

I LOVE feeding time as much as they do! And I can’t wait until it’s time again! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Keep calm, Spring is Coming!
