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

I love this simple Waterfall! It’s been here for many years and the Moss has spread and naturalized this area. Add in the bamboo and blooming impatiens and you have achieved Zen! 😊

I hope this brings a little “Zen” to your day –

This waterfall sounds so soothing. We sat and listened for a little while the other night during the “Moonlight Pond Tour” and decided it would make the perfect “Moment of Zen”. I hope it brings a little Zen to your day 😊
