Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

In this fast moving world, we are all looking for that stillness… I sometimes refer to it as a Moment of Zen. Many times I find it in waterfalls or the setting sun. Or on a quiet Sunday morning of solitude.

“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshness; Neither from nor towards; at the still point, There the dance is, But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity, Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards, Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point, There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”
    ~T.S. Eliot 

Have a great Day!

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 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!

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!

Sometimes, you just need to sit down, clear your mind & relax for a minute… I hope the sound of this Waterfall does the trick.

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

Being able to look out your window and see a flowing Waterfall, and then to walk out anytime you want and sit beside the stream and hear the sound and feel the positive energy… It’s an Awesome thing indeed! This Pondless Waterfall is such a feature and this is the perfect Zen Backyard. It is the Nucleus of the entire property. 

The Water Feature is the Nucleus of the entire Backyard world…

Callin’ It in …

I just had to amend my Blog today… it was on deck to publish… and I forgot to pull the trigger 😳 

This was last years Anniversary photo… a 26 year comparison shot. Not to shabby 😊

I, WE are taking a few day’s off to celebrate and to try and slow it down a little… Jo and I always try to plan some time around our Anniversary & we both look forward to time together. The years are literally flying by… But, I’ve apparently been having fun, because I haven’t really noticed 😊 

So, we are gonna take a break for a few days and try to relax. I will share some pics from the road over the next few days. 

Thanks 🙏🏻 Have a great weekend!

There’s not much more relaxing than floating on the river. Add to it a nice breeze, the sun ☀️ starting to set & Old Glory blowing in the wind… Priceless Zen



Summertime in Tennessee is hard to beat 😊
