Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

Well, I actually slept late this morning 😴 Late night movie marathon + Rain on a tin roof made it possible 😊 For the record, I actually woke up at my normal time! (with only a few hours of sleep…) But that rain coming down on the tin roof we were sleeping under, simply lulled me back to sleep 💤 Cut to brunch 🧇 🍳 Now we are going for an extended walk 🥾 So Im gonna post a few pics from the last couple days as my reflections…

The river/lake is dropping to winter pool and revealing things that are underwater during the season. Like this sunken houseboat. Makes a nice perch 🦅
Rainbows 🌈 are always welcome!
What a beautiful Sunset ⛅️

Theres more weekend to enjoy, so Im off!

“Waking up to the sound of rain on a tin roof, 
Music to my ears. 

Darkness still lurks as I open my ears and hear this sound. 

Music softly playing, 
Describes this day. 

The rain pours down softly, 
The sky is all grey”
   ~ Jeri Martindale 


Enjoy your Sunday!

Nothing, calms and relaxes you, like a Burble… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I told my wife that a minute ago and grinned 😊 Mmmm Hmmmm… ”Lets hear it, whats a burble”? Well well I said, let me lay this on ya’ real quick…

Here’s the definition of Burble : Verb ;

“To burble is to move with a rippling flow, the way water bubbles down the side of a small garden waterfall. A stream burbles as it travels along its bed, bubbling over rocks and branches. The verb burble captures both the movement of the water and the sound it makes as it moves.”

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

We were making the rounds last evening, right before dark. Feeding Koi and enjoying the Gardens, when the light sprinkles started ☔️ We finally got in the golf cart to ride up to the house and I stopped for one last look 👀 So I made a little video as the rain really got started… Check it out. Talk about relaxing and a feeling of Zen…

There is nothing like the sound of a Waterfall! Except maybe the sound and, smell of the rain. I believe the word for the smell of fresh rain on the garden soil is called ‘Petrichor’…

“Petrichor : the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek petra (πέτρα), “rock”, or petros (πέτρος), “stone”, and īchōr (ἰχώρ), the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.”

Combine those two things and … 🧘 Zen

Enjoy your day! 🌞
