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

This simple, mossy Waterfall & stream is tucked into this landscaped area with hollies behind and a Japanese Maple tree flanking it to the left. Beautiful in any season!

My offering for Monday’s ‘Moment of Zen’… 

 

Have a great day! And a Merry Christmas! 🎅🏻

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!

“Cyber” Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I sat by my Pond yesterday for quite a while. Listening to the wind & waterfalls and watching the leaves fall and blow around. It was a very windy, cloudy, melancholy type of day… But I found a little beauty in it to share 😊

I slowed this still photo down a bit and it really shows the soft, foamy, splashy effect of the Falls. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Have a great Monday!

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

It was a perfect, cool Fall day yesterday. The leaves were raining down around the pond and I just sat down and watched them for a while. I made this short little video sitting there by the pond. This little waterfall flows under this Japanese Maple tree that is in full Fall color right now. I hope it brings a little “Zen” to your day 😊

Have a GREAT day!
