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

I wanted to share a beautiful, private backyard I got to visit last week. The home is surrounded by gardens! Complete with gazebos and pathways and Bubbling Fountains with intimate/hidden little sitting areas (opportunities ❤️) within the outdoor spaces. WOW! I didn’t want to leave 😊 

Then I went to the Backyard Garden 😍 Check it out 👇🏻



We got to help redo this stream and waterfall that your looking down as it flows into the pond. We used the stone they had on site in the “re-configuration” and it turned out beautifully I think. So did they ❤️ 

 This is such A special garden that I asked them if they would like to be included in a future Pond/Garden Tour. She said she would LOVE to be on the tour 😊 So, some of you lucky folks will be able to stroll through what I consider to be one of the best designed and maintained gardens in West Tennessee in the near future.

Enjoy your Monday!

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

When you walk up to a Koi pond you are immediately greeted by the Koi that live there. Who are you? What ya’ got for me 😊 Koi are very friendly. Jo took this short video of these Koi swimming through the lilies saying hi. Koi live in a perpetual state of Zen!



Enjoy your day!

Beautiful night feeding koi and taking a couple of pictures and videos. We had a  couple little visitors… Check em’ out 👇🏻



There’s nothing like the sound of the waterfalls and the singing of the frogs 🐸 to relax and get you into a Zen state of mind. Have a great day 🌞

Watching my Koi swim through the lights and eat while listening to the Waterfalls… Simple and relaxing… 

I hope this “Moment of Zen” helps relax your mind as we all head into another week. 

Have a great day!

Throwback Thursday | Staycations | #Staycation | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

It seems we are staying home more and more now days… Forget dinner out! Forget flying to Disney! Forget that Vacation you’ve been planning since last year! So what do we do for fun? Break out the board games! Fire up the grill & get outside in your own Landscape! Can you say Staycation?! 

This video was my very 1st. Video on YouTube! It’s still so relevant! Do you recognize that guy telling you how his backyard Pond changed his life? YES! That’s Bill Way! I miss his unique take on world events like we are seeing now! But believe me, he knew how to enjoy his leisure time at home 🏡 He loved to #Staycation! 

My Point? Use this down time to be with family at home & try to make it fun. Try to get in the Staycation mindset 😎 I’ve been feeding my Koi, grilling, Netflixing, “Deep Organizing” and listening to a LOT of Jimmy Buffet 🎶 🌺 Don’t think of it as having to… Think of it as getting to 😊❤️

Have a safe and happy Thursday!

This is one of my favorite Waterfalls. The aquatic plants are lush and the waterfall sound is so southing. The Koi get excited when anyone comes around the ponds edge. Check out this short video & I bet you will feel the same way.

I love this waterfall & Pond. Come by Carters Nursery & see it in person sometime.

I hope this adds a little Zen to your day 😊

Yesterday evening into last night was so nice. We finished the evening outside by feeding the Koi. It was quiet & so pleasant, very… Zen like 😊

I hope this short video of the Koi brings a little Zen to your morning.

 

Happy Pondering 🤔
