Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Sometimes a simple Waterfall is all it takes to grab your attention. This is an area where two streams converge & I just love the sound and movement! I thought I would share this for #waterfallwednesday.

This little convergence isn’t the main focal point of this Water Feature by far! But, it’s all the little parts together that make a Magical Water Feature! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

Check out the video 👇🏻

Enjoy your day! Not only is today #waterfallwednesday, it’s Hump Day! We are half way through the week!

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Another #Waterfallwednesday is upon us 😊 I ❤️ Waterfalls! Here are two (2) brand new Waterfalls that were just set in motion. These are on the same feature, and it’s a Very special Water Garden! I will show this whole project in a future Blog, once it’s complete… It’s still a “work in progress”.

I slowed the shutter speed down a little on this picture to really show the smooth, flowing feel of this waterfall. I think it turned out to have a very natural look and feel. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This Waterfall & Stream enter a different part of the pond & create a very natural look and feel. The driftwood adds a nice touch too. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

 

I LOVE seeing a new Water Garden come to life! There’s nothing like it 😊

I hope y’all enjoy my offerings for #WaterfallWednesday!

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

We always strive to make Water Features look as natural as possible. Using native stone and  mossy accent wood really helps too. This feature was just turned on for the first time 5 minutes before I took this video… Some of the stone was sourced from a local creek as well as this old cedar stump.

I LOVE ❤️ Waterfalls! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

 

I hope this brings a little Zen to your day!

After a week of storms, when all the rain finally quit, I walked down to where the drainage/Creek goes under the road at the Nursery. It has its own natural beauty 😊 Once it subsides we have a bit of cleanup to do, but thank the Lord, no major damage.

Check out the flow of water in this short video. Maybe the sound of the flowing creek will add a little Zen to your morning 😊

Have a Great Monday!

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

Monday Morning Moment of Zen has gotten to be a tradition! There’s no better way to calm the mind & spirit than a flowing stream or a waterfall. This short video of a simple Pondless stream & Waterfalls says it all – beautiful, organic & natural! A pleasure to sit by in the morning or evening. The perfect way to set the stage for today 😊 Have a Great Day!

Happy Pondering 🤔

This ones a little different than usual, BUT – there’s not much more of a free “Zen like” feeling than being on the open water in your kayak just floating down the river 😊 This is a local place that’s convenient & nice. Their rates are fair & the people are friendly. I am ready for Spring & “river weather”! Enjoy 😉

 

Happy Pondering! And stay warm this week!

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

I got out in the gardens a little bit yesterday. It was such a beautiful day! Warm-ish and sunny, it strangely felt like a breezy Spring day… The soil is so soft from all the rain & warm temps & the robins and other birds were pulling worms 🐛 out of the ground and singing.

The birds were out in force feasting on seeds, berries & worms 🐛

I took this short video from above one of my Waterfalls looking down the stream as it flows away.

 

“I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.”
“We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.”
   ~ Oliver Herford.
Have a a great day!
