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

Waterfall Wednesday! AKA: Hump Day! Nothing gets me over that hump better than the energy of a Beautiful Waterfall! This one is in the center of a beautiful resort community, nestled along the banks of Kentucky Lake. 

I took this picture last night after Midnight. It’s a beautiful Pondless Waterfall Feature at Birdsong Resort and Marina. I just Love Waterfalls ❤️

Waterfall Wednesday is one of my favorite days of the week! 


Have a Great One!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

Time is flying by this Summer! It’s time for a Monday Morning Zen video once again. I thought I would share my Outdoor Area with you today. I filmed this at night a while back and it’s where I spend my evenings most days. Talk about Zen… 

I hope you enjoyed my little walk through of my garden. If I could help with yours give me a call. 

Have a great week!

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

I LOVE my Garden at Night! This is just a quick video I took last night of my Water Garden and the surrounding area. The sound of the Waterfall with the frogs and crickets chirping is pretty Awesome by itself, but add in the lighting and sitting areas, you literally get an Outdoor Living Area!

I even lit 🔥 my “Iron Butterfly” that sits in a mass of Lantana. “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida Baby”!

 

I hope this little video brings a little Zen to your day!

I recently added some Color Changing Underwater Lights to a couple of my Water Features at the Nursery. This is a Color Changing Fountain Light in this Stacked Slate Urn Fountain. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE it ❤️!

I LOVE these new Color Changing Lights! They are LED’s and pretty much maintenance free 😊

Sitting outside at night with the sound of the Waterfalls and these lights slowly changing colors, will almost hypnotize you. So relaxing and Zen like 😊

 

I hope this brought a little Zen into your day😊

I’ve posted this video before, but I know many haven’t seen it & I really want this message to get out there. Talk about relaxing & a feeling of Zen! Many don’t even know that you can develop something like this at your home.

Zen is much easier to find here…

Imagine how you would use this space! Imagine the impact on your daily life… 💥

Have a Great Monday!

We just fired this one up Saturday at our ‘Waterfalls in Your Life’ class. I think it turned out Great! Unique and what a great sound. Come by and see it when you get a chance.

The Moonlight Luau inspired me to get out again last night and I enjoyed the time after the rain passed. Such a feeling of peace and… Zen.

I LOVE the ‘Nightscape’!

 

I hope this brings a little Zen into your day!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful night we had last evening. We had our Luau party and the weather was just perfect 😊 So many wonderful people came and enjoyed a beautiful June evening in our Garden. The music was Awesome and the food was Great!

From prepping the food to greeting guest yesterday was filled with fun! The neatest reactions came from some of the kids😊 Kids LOVE nature!

Summer is just starting! But it will be gone in the blink of an eye 👁… I hope you can get out and enjoy the Summer season. In fact, let’s all make a point to do just that😊 Times flying by…

 

“Mine is the Month of Roses; yes, and mine
The Month of Marriages! All pleasant sights
And scents, the fragrance of the blossoming vine,
The foliage of the valleys and the heights.
Mine are the longest days, the loveliest nights;
The mower’s scythe makes music to my ear;
I am the mother of all dear delights;
I am the fairest daughter of the year.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

Have a GREAT Sunday!
