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

Nothing says Spring to me, like a freshly cleaned pond! I just LOVE it! ❤️ Spring feeding time is getting near and my finned friends & I are ready!

The Waterfalls and Pond are clean, clear and ready for the season! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I keep a pretty close eye 👁 on my Water Features, so it wasn’t as monumental a task as it could have been😉 but there’s still a LOT of benefits to starting the season with a clean Pond! Devoid of dirty filters, half rotten leaves, fish waste and decaying plant matter from last years growth. My Koi really appreciate it too as your about to see 😊 I went out at dark and shot this short video after the Pond was full and the Waterfalls running. The Koi are so happy! They are swimming and sifting through the gravel and so active. I ❤️ My Koi! I hope this little video  gives you a nice feeling too! A little bit o’ Zen on a Monday morning…

 

Here’s to Spring!

Happy Pondering 🤔

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

Monday Morning Moment of Zen has gotten to be a tradition! There’s no better way to calm the mind & spirit than a flowing stream or a waterfall. This short video of a simple Pondless stream & Waterfalls says it all – beautiful, organic & natural! A pleasure to sit by in the morning or evening. The perfect way to set the stage for today 😊 Have a Great Day!

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

I don’t know about y’all, but it felt like a straight up Spring weekend! Complete with a bluebird sky and even a few flying bugs 🐜! So, of course I ended up outside messing around the gardens & ponds 😊 I ❤️ It! I took this short video to share this morning, hopefully to extend this feeling of early Spring!

The Koi are out moving nicely too. I think they heard what Punxsutawney Phil had to say about Spring as well 😊 I’m ready!

 

Have a Great day!

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

This ones a little different than usual, BUT – there’s not much more of a free “Zen like” feeling than being on the open water in your kayak just floating down the river 😊 This is a local place that’s convenient & nice. Their rates are fair & the people are friendly. I am ready for Spring & “river weather”! Enjoy 😉

 

Happy Pondering! And stay warm this week!

Moment of Zen…

I personally love this short video. I was the only person on the beach as far as you can see, the water was warm and the waves were gentle. What a perfect sunrise! 🌞 I hope it brings a little Zen to your Monday!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen …

What a beautiful morning! The tide is going out leaving these shallow tidal pools, warm & full of life… small crabs, minnows & lots of sea shells are left behind. Not to mention the Herons…

This Heron makes a living stealing bait 😊

 

The sound and sight of the Gulf is my offering for today’s Moment of Zen.

Happy Pondering 🤔

Christmas Eve Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Good morning! This is always a BIG day in our family! We have our big family meal on Christmas Eve 😊 LOTS of cooking to do and I love to listen to some Christmas music.  Here’s a cool piano mix I came across that has all the classics…

Merry Christmas 🎅🏻❤️🎄
