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

Why is Monday morning different than any other morning of the week? You can name many things I’m sure, I know I can… But it really boils down to starting the grind again… Finding motivation and inspiration help. If your mentally prepared, it’s just another beautiful day ⛅️ Get up a little early, and find that mental clarity, that place of Zen 🙏🏻

Thanks to my Waterfalls, I have a ‘Place of Zen’ to return to. A Waterfall will help you clear your mind, slow your heart rate and aid in mental focus. Enjoy your day 🌞

Monday Morning Moment of Zen

I love nature! Rivers, streams, lakes, flora & Fauna… That’s why today I thought I would share the call of this nesting mother Osprey (fish hawk). She’s on her nest, feeding her brood. We just happened to be taking some pictures from the boat and saw her on the nest. There is nothing more “Zen Like” to me than a true moment of nature.

It’s Monday! We are leading up to Memorial Day and I Love Ospreys 🦅 I hope you enjoyed this little moment of Zen. Have a great week 😊

Monday Morning Moment of Zen

I simply Love the sound of a Waterfall! So relaxing, so soothing… Here’s my next favorite Water sound. Even on a gloomy, stormy day it will relax your mind. Pull up a lounge chair and listen to this👇🏻

I could lay down there on a lounge chair and drift off in a moment… Zen bliss 🌊

Have a great Monday!

Sunday Reflections…

As I watched the sky slowly come to light this morning, I listened to everything wake up in turn. All the different birds singing and chirping and coming to life as the morning sun made its slow progression. No matter how many times I sit and listen, it never disappoints… I’m also always surprised at how fast the Spring moves by. Here we are in May 😳 Already in mid season. I try to enjoy every day of it! The Sunrise 🌅 to the Sunset 🌇 The Garden to the River…

Does this rock look like a hand making a peace ✌🏻 sign or is it just me? 😊
Dinners on the patio again! I love Spring! ❤️
Crazy Legs is Loving the Pond scene 😊
All this happened in one Spring day and I still made it to the river and enjoyed the sunset from the water 🌅

“The world’s favorite season is the spring. 
All things seem possible in May.”

This one was posted a little late… A VERY full day!

Enjoy your evening…

It’s Monday morning and a new week awaits! I always love getting out early and feeding my Koi. Of course, I also love getting out late and doing the same 😊 Here’s a short video from last nights feeding. I thought it would be a nice Moment of Zen for today…

Monday’s are sometimes trying, a moment of zen goes a long way!

Have a great Day!

Yesterday was so nice. I was outside most of the day, watched the sunset and then made this short little video of my Pond and Waterfall.

Spring is finally here 😊 And I love it! I hope this little clip somehow conveys the feeling of Zen that I get sitting out by my Pond.

Have a Great week!

Don’t blink 👁 … It’s Monday once again! “Got anymore of that Weekend”??? The older I get, the more I become ‘pro 3 day weekend’ 😊 Thank goodness for my Waterfalls! This time of year, as everything is waking up, coming out and the weather is getting warmer, I’m out by my Ponds and Waterfalls more and more. My Waterfalls and Koi make mornings and evenings so much more relaxing and bearable. Especially on a busy Monday morning…

Enjoy this Little ‘Moment of Zen’…

Let’s all have a wonderful Monday morning!

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😊

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

I don’t know about you, but I could use a little Zen today. I sat by this Pond over the weekend to think about what’s been going on over the last few days. This was my Grandma’s Pond and Waterfall and it really speaks to me when I need a little piece of mind. I hope in this little snippet you will see and hear what I’m talking about.

Within a matter of minutes the sound of the Waterfall and the swimming Koi just melt the tension away. I can feel my heart rate slow and my mind relax. A Waterfall is a Magical thing…

Have a great week!
