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

I love to start Mondays with a flowing Waterfall if I can. There is nothing more relaxing and grounding than the sound and feeling of flowing water…

Nothing like it. ❤️ This Waterfall was just built and turned on about 10 days ago! The homeowners just LOVE it! I do too…

Have a great Monday!

I was out in the Garden late last evening. When it gets warm I have a hard time making myself go inside 😊 I captured this little video of a Waterfall for this mornings Moment of Zen… Hope you like it.

There is something about a Waterfall… It will grab your attention and all of a sudden a wave of relaxation washes over you and you are calm, cool and collected… I hope this little snippet will help you relax a bit too 😊

Have a great Monday!

The Zen of Spring Frost

If you are like many Gardeners and live by the ”Last Frost Date” given in the Almanac or in your local paper, you may be very disappointed this morning… I’m getting ready to go out and uncover the hundreds of plants that I have under blankets, sheets and in a big cold frame greenhouse.

Late frost caught many off guard last night.

Why does it ’sneak up’ on us so often?

With me its all about staying in tune with the particular season. Spring here in West TN fluctuates from sweaty 80’s weather to 60 mile an hour winds with frost and snow ❄️ BUT, that relationship you form with the seasons and the changes is where the Zen lies…
But, its tough to wait! As soon as the forsythia and the daffodil 🌼 blooms I’m already setting up my planters and pots 🪴 And, I try to be ready for people coming in to my Nursery early, which means we spend a month or more moving plants in and out of the greenhouse… 😊

All these things we do, hoping to solve the ‘Riddle of Spring’! 😊

Finding balance and Zen within ourselves is found within our own Gardens…

PS: The good news is, I think we are past Frost now for real!

“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.”

~ Henry Van Dyke


Have a great Tuesday!

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

Good afternoon! 🌞 Wow, what a beautiful day 🌼 Spring has Sprung and I am running full speed 🏎 There is no better way for me to slow down and catch my breath than to sit down by my Waterfall with a cup of coffee ☕️ Within minutes I feel like a different man… Heres a short video I made last night of my Waterfall after dark. The Landscape Lighting, along with the Moon made the first day of Spring a beautiful one…

Spring is HERE! Slow down, listen to the Waterfalls! Take the time and smell a few roses 🌹too 😊

Heres a beautiful semi formal Water Garden I had the pleasure of touring while down in Southern Florida recently. It was warm and in bloom and made me dream of Spring…

Spring is coming! Soon our water lilies will be blooming and our koi will be eating from our hands and all will be right in the world of the Water Garden ❤️ Until then, enjoy the season as it unfolds…

Have a great week!

Monday Evening Moment of Zen

I usually share a Waterfall but this runs a close second in the ability to relax and allow me to zone out and embrace nothingness…

The Gulf of Mexico with not another human being in sight 👁 Priceless!

Have a great night!

Fall is in full splendor 🍂 We have peaked in our Fall color and soon the wind will sweep it all away 🌬 I wanted to share my little view of Autumn Beauty with you this morning. The colorful foliage with the crashing Waterfalls provides the perfect place of Zen on a crisp Monday morning…

Get out today and take a walk or a ride around the neighborhood and enjoy the Fall color while its still here… It will be gone in the blink of an eye 👁

Have a great day!
