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

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 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!

This beautiful Pondless Waterfall has 2 streams converging into a common area at the bottom. The sound is wonderful! Take a look and maybe it will add a little Zen to your day 😊

I had a great day exploring the Tennessee Aquarium last week. The displays are beautifully created! Great attention to detail is required to build a Feature that looks and feels Natural… The very top of the Aquarium is where the “natural” flow of water originates from streams & springs and represents a natural biome where native critters live. This area is home to the otters as well as some beautiful Waterfalls and streams. I hope this Stream and Waterfall lend a little Zen to your day!  

Make Monday a FUN Day!
