The LOVE of Water Wednesday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I usually post a picture or a video of a waterfall on Wednesdays. The beauty and serenity that waterfalls create is undeniable. But today I was looking back on this little video of the Gulf of Mexico. Early morning, on the beach right after a pretty good storm at daybreak. The beauty and power of the ocean 🌊 is also undeniable…

Have a good night! 🌙

Sunday Reflections…

Man I love a rainy Sunday Morning ❤️ I’ve been out on the porch since about 6am just listening 👂🏻 First to the thunder, then the lightning 🌩 then the storm hit ⛈ I fell back asleep in my papasan chair 😴 I woke back up with a song in my head… Riders on the Storm by the Doors. So I go inside to get my guitar and when I come back, I had to find another seat… My audience was waiting…

She loves to lay in MY papasan chair and listen to me play guitar 🎸

We have had a busy week at work! Hosted a birthday party 🎈 Went to an Art Show 🖼 Drove to several out of town locations for design meetings, watered, mowed, mechanic’d, and still didn’t get it all done… and I wouldn’t have it any other way! A busy schedule is a good thing! A blessing 🙏🏻
But today, I’m gonna watch it rain for a while…

“I hear leaves drinking rain;
I hear rich leaves on top
Giving the poor beneath
Drop after drop;
’Tis a sweet noise to hear
These green leaves drinking near.

And when the Sun comes out,
After this Rain shall stop,
A wondrous Light will fill
Each dark, round drop;
I hope the Sun shines bright;
’Twill be a lovely sight.”

~ W.H. Davies


Have a lovely Sunday!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen

The sound of falling water is powerful! Listening is a great way to relax… I took this short video from my favorite chair on my porch a couple of mornings ago. It may not be what your expecting, but the sound and feeling of this falling water is undeniable. Powerful. Relaxing. Soothing. All at the same time…

It’s Monday morning! I hope this little ‘moment of zen’ helps. Let’s get out there and have a great, productive week 🙏🏻

Sunday Reflections…

Hummingbirds are such unique creatures ❤️ They love the rain 🌧 I’ve been out since early, on my porch listening to the rain at first, then as the world lit up watching the Hummingbirds take turns feeding on sugar water nectar… I swept the porch off and even played my guitar for a little while.

Its gone down to a light sprinkle now & it feels so good, sounds so good, smells so good… I Love a rainy morning like this ❤️

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Have a wonderful Sunday

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

Good afternoon! 🌞 Wow, what a beautiful day 🌼 Spring has Sprung and I am running full speed 🏎 There is no better way for me to slow down and catch my breath than to sit down by my Waterfall with a cup of coffee ☕️ Within minutes I feel like a different man… Heres a short video I made last night of my Waterfall after dark. The Landscape Lighting, along with the Moon made the first day of Spring a beautiful one…

Spring is HERE! Slow down, listen to the Waterfalls! Take the time and smell a few roses 🌹too 😊

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

Monday mornings are a little different… A new week starts now. Time to make the doughnuts… Are you ready? Being mentally prepared is the key 🔐 It helps me to relax and focus to listen to the sound of flowing water 🌊 Check this video out and see what you think.

Did you listen? Do you see what I mean? Its a scientific fact, that being around moving, flowing water, ie; Waterfalls 🌊 makes your heart rate drop, it lowers blood pressure, it helps you to breath easier and you get an almost immediate feeling of relaxation. I for one can attest to all these things, because I visit mine daily 😊

Its Monday! Get out there and have a Great week!

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

Good Morning! 🌞 The weekend is behind us and new challenges are on the horizon… If you are focused and mentally prepared, you can meet any challenge head on. My Waterfalls and Koi help me find that place of focus, that place of Zen. Check out the short clip of my Waterfall and fish from last night 👇🏻

The waterfall sounds, the frogs 🐸 and the Koi make for quite the show. It’s a show I watch everyday 😊 I hope this clip shows you what I’m talking about.
Have a blessed Monday!
