Don’t blink 👁 It’s #Waterfallwednesday again! I have been going through photos putting together a slideshow presentation for a wonderful group of local gardeners. I just really enjoy looking back at projects we have been involved in! Especially when I get to use the information to help others who are interested in our wonderful hobby of water gardening!
So since I have a few pictures at hand, I will post several Waterfalls for you today! All designed and installed by the team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio!

I hope these images lift your day! All of these are in a clients backyard paradise and I just bet you that they are sitting out there right about now, enjoying the sight and sound of their own private Waterfall.

Have a great #Waterfallwednesday!

Jump down, turn around, and its #waterfallwednesday once again… I don’t know about you, but 2021 has flown by ✈️ Thank goodness for Waterfalls 😊 They slow things down a bit… They help you relax and forget about things. Here is a beautiful Waterfall i posted a while back and I promised a completed picture when i had one. Well here ya’ go – A beautiful waterfall and stream complete with some beautiful plants and pine straw mulch. I hope you like it😊

Waterfall Wednesday is hard to beat 😊

This one changed this entire backyard! no more road noise! No more blank/boring hillside! Now they are enjoying the sight and sound of flowing water. Groups of birds fly in to bathe and eat. Even deer have dropped by to check things out. At night when the lights kick on… Show Stopper folks! 💥

Y’all enjoy this beautiful day! From here I can almost see the weekend!!!

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!

Sunday Reflections…

The morning after is real… 🤫 I was the only one up in the whole house most of the morning… I don’t know what it is, but i cant “sleep in”. I’m just drawn up and then outside in the morning 🌞 But truth be told, I am pretty worn out too… Last night we hosted our annual Moonlight Pond Tour for the 17th time. And it was such a beautiful night!

Jo got a great black & white shot last night of the emerging moon across the Pond. It was a wonderful night.

We didn’t get through talking with folks, closing up and blowing out all the Tiki Torches and candles till around 12:30 last night, which is pretty late for an old Pond Guy and Gal 😊 But then when we got inside the house, were wide awake… so we had coffee and cake… ☕️🍰 Whew, great day and what a great night! but then… The Morning After 😒 I may need a nap 🥱

We met this cool little dude last night. He was with his folks and was just in love with the whole idea of having a Pond with streams and waterfalls in your own yard! His excitement was almost contagious!
I LOVE this Pondless Waterfall!
The Moonlight Pond Tour is a Fund Raiser for our local shelter – The Jackson Animal Care and Adoption Center. Thanks to all that came out last night and made a contribution!
The Moon and the Clouds made for a Magical sky last night!

Thank You! to everyone who came out to support the cause! And a BIG ’Thank You’ to the homeowners who hosted the tour! ❤️ Its an honor and a privilege to be surrounded by such Awesome and caring people 🙏🏻

Enjoy your day!

“Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning …”

~ William Wordsworth

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” 💥
