Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

Next weekend is Memorial Day weekend… 😳 Yes, it’s almost Summer! I’m not fussing now, I Love Summer!… But, Spring went by so fast 💨 I’m gonna try to slow it down a little and enjoy at least a little bit of Summer.

What do YOU enjoy about Summer? For me it’s the Garden and the River!
Sunsets from the boat 🌅
Breakfast at the Marina or diner is big on my Summer list as well.

Summer “Unofficially” begins next weekend!

Are you ready?

“Morning’s soft air, touching everything with such care,
Caresses a young face in a quiet, secluded place.
Smile planted strong, heart beating on.
Only one thing is on her mind, and that is summertime.

A joy reckless and wild, 
that’s been in the heart of every child, 
now set within her, 
for there is no cure.
Her spirit set free, soars higher than the trees.

The books that weighed her down, 
now thrown on the ground.
The rivers cleansed from winter, 
are now heated for splendor.
The happiness of knowing
no bedtimes are set, 
and no schedules to be met.
The sun now beating within her veins 
washes away all her pains.

Then without a sound, 
the sun starts to sink down.
so she heads inside, 
satisfied, 
until the next time.

But her spirit is just too wild and decides to wait a while,
so it stays outside and watches the sun, 
waiting for what is to come.

The birds fall asleep, the peepers start to peep,
and slowly the sunbeams caressing the mountains,
turn them into splendorous fountains.”

~ Abbey Silent (A Time Of Freedom).

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

I just heard it was Monday morning… WOW! Already?! Got anymore of that weekend… 😂

In the Halloween 🎃 Spirit, here’s a little video I took for y’all a few days back. The water in Kentucky Lake is down to Winter pool, which exposes lots of beaches and banks and little island areas for birds to land. I just happened upon a large group of Buzzards 😱 They were hoping around and eating something… I drifted up toward them quiet as possible, I even killed the engine as you will hear in the video… It’s kinda funny, the second I pushed the record video button, they jumped and started flying off 🦅

But they didn’t go far. Watch as they circle and start landing in that big old dead tree in the distance… A “Buzzard roost”.

Question : Do you know what a large group of Buzzards is called?

Answer: A Wake…

Have a great Monday Morning!

Happy Halloween 🎃 👻😱

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! The weather went from HOT to perfect 👌🏼 just like that. We spent last evening on the water watching the wildlife and waiting for the sunset. It was an evening well spent …

Such a peaceful evening as we float and watch the sun disappear into the horizon.


The river sleeps beneath the sky,
And clasps the shadows to its breast;
The crescent moon shines dim on high;
And in the lately radiant west
The gold is fading into gray.
Now stills the lark his festive lay,
And mourns with me the dying day.

   ~ Paul Laurence Dunbar

Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

Yesterday afternoon we went up to the river to look around at the flood. Many of the worst hit areas still aren’t accessible at all… But from what I saw, many have lost everything! Historic floods = Disaster!

Floods have devastated many areas up and down the TN River.

Below is a prayer I saw online about the flood and the flood victims. Our hopes and prayers are with the folks affected all up and down the river 🙏🏻

“Lord I pray your hand of safety and guidance upon all the victims of the regions under flood conditions. Bless these people Lord and keep them safe. Do not let the flood waters steal their lives. Drive back the floods to protect their homes and their precious animals”.

~ Amen 🙏🏻

 

The water has finally crested & will start to slowly recede now.

 

Have a blessed day,
