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

We were making the rounds last evening, right before dark. Feeding Koi and enjoying the Gardens, when the light sprinkles started ☔️ We finally got in the golf cart to ride up to the house and I stopped for one last look 👀 So I made a little video as the rain really got started… Check it out. Talk about relaxing and a feeling of Zen…

There is nothing like the sound of a Waterfall! Except maybe the sound and, smell of the rain. I believe the word for the smell of fresh rain on the garden soil is called ‘Petrichor’…

“Petrichor : the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek petra (πέτρα), “rock”, or petros (πέτρος), “stone”, and īchōr (ἰχώρ), the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.”

Combine those two things and … 🧘 Zen

Enjoy your day! 🌞

Waterfall Wednesday Night 🌙 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I always tell people that when you get your own Pond & Waterfall, that you really get 2 Ponds. You get the daytime feature with flowers and crystal clear water, glinting and reflecting the sun 🌞 So beautiful! But you also get the Nighttime Pond! And man oh man! 😍 Here’s a quick video of my ‘Nighttime Pond’… It will be featured in our upcoming Moonlight Pond Tour 🌙 in September. I hope to see you there!

This is such a beautiful evening! I’m going to sit out here for a while and just breathe…

Have a great evening 🌝

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

I worked on my own Gardens yesterday! It was such a beautiful day and thank goodness, with Jo and Jacobs help, we got it looking really good! We are back to feeding our Koi again as well, so I got that going for me 😊 When we went to clean this little Disappearing Fountain up, I was blown away by the lack of maintenance that it takes to keep this little Water Feature looking great! These few leaves in the water in the lower basin was really all there was to clean up after Winter. I just Love ❤️ this little Water Feature!

This is my offering for your Monday Moment of Zen. I hope you enjoy this beautiful day😊

The beauty of a Garden 🪴 in the Spring and Summer is a given. But this evening as I was walking up the hill I just happened to look up and Boom 💥 The moon 🌙 the bare birch trees, the lights and the sound of the Waterfalls… Even on a night in January, I had to stop and enjoy the beauty.

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Waterfall Wednesday! AKA: Hump Day! Nothing gets me over that hump better than the energy of a Beautiful Waterfall! This one is in the center of a beautiful resort community, nestled along the banks of Kentucky Lake. 

I took this picture last night after Midnight. It’s a beautiful Pondless Waterfall Feature at Birdsong Resort and Marina. I just Love Waterfalls ❤️

Waterfall Wednesday is one of my favorite days of the week! 


Have a Great One!

Time is flying by this Summer! It’s time for a Monday Morning Zen video once again. I thought I would share my Outdoor Area with you today. I filmed this at night a while back and it’s where I spend my evenings most days. Talk about Zen… 

I hope you enjoyed my little walk through of my garden. If I could help with yours give me a call. 

Have a great week!
