Sunday Reflections…

We finally had some much needed rain! My lawn and gardens certainly appreciated it… Looking at the weeks forecast, there is a chance of rain almost daily, but temps are gonna settle into the 80’s for what appears to be a mostly normal August! It’s a very pleasant morning 🌞 Locust in the background, partly sunny and mild. The birds are singing, my oven is preheating, & I’m drinking coffee ☕️ trying to capture a thought 💭

I’m a coffee ☕️ cup collector of sorts… This morning I’m drinking from the Sunliner Diner endless cup… That’s right 😊 If you take this cup back to the Diner with you, FREE COFFEE ☕️…💥 Needless to say, pretty good morning 😃

Last night I started getting serious with my Moonlight Pond Tour preparation… Checking lights, adjusting things, trying a few new things out… Please let me know what you think so far 😊

It was HOT last night though! 92 degrees and super humid at 11pm 😯 When we got through Jo and I were both soaked and exhausted 🥱 It’s a good feeling to me 😊

Great end to a great week! It’s been hot, but it’s about to change…

“Seen from above, the canopy of oak and make and pine is pierced by the pond, which looks back at you like some green eye, knowing and ancient. The air above the pond dives into clefts of coolness, then rises up at the warmth of the margins. Down the path, filigrees of blackflies and mosquitos dance in the heat waves given off by men and women and their domestic fires. Joyous bats dart about.”

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 😊

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.”
~ definition from vocabulary.com

If you just watched and listened to this :30 second video, you know what a Burble sounds like 😊 This Saturday night, during the Moonlight Pond Tour, theres gonna be ”A WHOLE LOTTA BURBLING GOING ON” 💥

Saturday is the night! Tickets are on Sale Now! At Carters Nursery Pond & Patio

There will be LIVE Music at the Nursery Saturday Night during the Pond Tour! AND – I might even perform my brand new ditty ”Whole Lotta Burbling Goin On” 💥

Thats a VERY important question! I mean, literally half of every day is either going into or coming out of darkness… The vast majority of us work during “business hours”, which means most of our free time is in the evening or at night! 🌙 So, let me ask you again, Do you enjoy your Garden at Night?!

Wow right! imagine something like this beautiful Waterfall being the ‘focal point’ of your Garden… I bet you would spend a lot more time outside away from the TV 🌕

This weekend there is a very Unique Opportunity to get outside, under a Full Moon, and tour some Gorgeous, well lit Gardens! All of them include beautiful Water Features and extensive lighting and Landscaping. Some with Outdoor Kitchens, Fire pits, Patios, Pergolas and more.

This is the best ”Date Night” of the year! You tour around in the privacy of your own vehicle, at your own pace. Then explore these beautiful Private Gardens. Its 100% self guided and the directions are easy to follow along with.

After your eyes are opened to this ”Nighttime World”, you will never be the same 😊❤️

If your wanting to get some ideas and see what others have done to be better able to enjoy their evenings and nights, Don’t miss this Tour.
