Sunday Reflections…

We finally had some much needed rain! My lawn and gardens certainly appreciated it… Looking at the weeks forecast, there is a chance of rain almost daily, but temps are gonna settle into the 80’s for what appears to be a mostly normal August! It’s a very pleasant morning 🌞 Locust in the background, partly sunny and mild. The birds are singing, my oven is preheating, & I’m drinking coffee ☕️ trying to capture a thought 💭

I’m a coffee ☕️ cup collector of sorts… This morning I’m drinking from the Sunliner Diner endless cup… That’s right 😊 If you take this cup back to the Diner with you, FREE COFFEE ☕️…💥 Needless to say, pretty good morning 😃

Last night I started getting serious with my Moonlight Pond Tour preparation… Checking lights, adjusting things, trying a few new things out… Please let me know what you think so far 😊

It was HOT last night though! 92 degrees and super humid at 11pm 😯 When we got through Jo and I were both soaked and exhausted 🥱 It’s a good feeling to me 😊

Great end to a great week! It’s been hot, but it’s about to change…

“Seen from above, the canopy of oak and make and pine is pierced by the pond, which looks back at you like some green eye, knowing and ancient. The air above the pond dives into clefts of coolness, then rises up at the warmth of the margins. Down the path, filigrees of blackflies and mosquitos dance in the heat waves given off by men and women and their domestic fires. Joyous bats dart about.”

Evening Zen | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I love the evening Garden! Especially in the Summer ❤️ I usually feature a water feature in my ’Zen’ posts… This evenings is a little different than the normal Water Element that I focus on… It has been so hot lately, and dry! We are running the Low Volume Sprinklers in the evenings and at night in different parts of the garden. This garden statue caught our eye 👁 this evening. The lighting has recently kicked on and the misty sprinklers behind this hand carved stone angel, really create a cool effect. Very calming, very cooling and very ’Zen’ on a warm Summer night in July…

I LOVE Summertime! ❤️ Enjoy your night!

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

Yesterday evening was so nice! A cool northerly breeze pushed all that humidity out and as the Landscape Lighting was kicking on the entire garden had such a ’Zen’ feeling… It was so surreal… I took this short video to share with you this morning.

Enjoy this day! And enjoy this week as well, it ends with a long weekend! Independence Day here we come! 💥🇺🇸💥

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

I was out in the Garden late last evening. When it gets warm I have a hard time making myself go inside 😊 I captured this little video of a Waterfall for this mornings Moment of Zen… Hope you like it.

There is something about a Waterfall… It will grab your attention and all of a sudden a wave of relaxation washes over you and you are calm, cool and collected… I hope this little snippet will help you relax a bit too 😊

Have a great Monday!

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

Good afternoon! 🌞 Wow, what a beautiful day 🌼 Spring has Sprung and I am running full speed 🏎 There is no better way for me to slow down and catch my breath than to sit down by my Waterfall with a cup of coffee ☕️ Within minutes I feel like a different man… Heres a short video I made last night of my Waterfall after dark. The Landscape Lighting, along with the Moon made the first day of Spring a beautiful one…

Spring is HERE! Slow down, listen to the Waterfalls! Take the time and smell a few roses 🌹too 😊
