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

The Moonlight Luau inspired me to get out again last night and I enjoyed the time after the rain passed. Such a feeling of peace and… Zen.

I LOVE the ‘Nightscape’!

 

I hope this brings a little Zen into your day!

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

About 5 minutes before I took this video, we plugged this one in 😊 This brand new Pondless Waterfall looks like it has been here forever… It really naturalized this area and it truly brings a feeling of ‘Zen’…

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 😊

Sunday Reflections…

Do you ever get so immersed in something, that time just disappears. This morning I grabbed my guitar 🎸 and sat down on the porch to watch the sky light up & started picking around on it, the next thing I knew, it was 8am… 2 1/2-3 hours were gone 🤔 It felt like 5 minutes… Where does that time go? And wouldn’t it be Awesome if we could go there on command… 😮

I found a moment of zen that last 3 hours…

“Do not speak to us of the greatness of poetry,
Of the torches wisping in the underground,

Of the structure of vaults upon a point of light.
There are no shadows in our sun,

Day is desire and night is sleep.
There are no shadows anywhere.

The earth, for us, is flat and bare.
There are no shadows. Poetry

Exceeding music must take the place
Of empty heaven and its hymns,

Ourselves in poetry must take their place,
Even in the chattering of your guitar.”

  ~ Wallace Stevens


Have a great Sunday!

What a beautiful pond! Complete with multiple waterfalls, fish & some beautiful plants. I hope this brings a little Zen into your day 😊

Sit by this waterfall & listen to the birds & let your cares melt away.

To me, nothing is more southing and hypnotic than the sounds of the frogs and crickets and Waterfalls at night. It’s like having the Tennessee River in my backyard 😊

I hope these gentle sounds bring you to a place of Zen.

 

Have a great Monday!

A beautiful evening always draws me out to the Pond 😊 I took this short video as the landscape lighting was kicking on. Under water lights, fountain lights, up lighting on the trees & more… I love the “Nightscape” 😊 I hope it adds  little Zen to your day.

I love the nighttime pond!
