My go to place - Cannon Hall Gardens

Where is the one place you always feel like home?

Feeling at home, to me, means feeling relaxed, at ease, as though all the commotion and bustle of the day-to-day has just come to a stop and you haven’t got a worry in the world.

By home this is really an abstract concept, it is a state of mind. Somewhere you feel safe, loved, accepted, and relaxed.

If I am feeling stressed, anxious or nervous its the place that brings me peace, calm and tranquilly. To feel back in the moment of now with no thought for the future or the past.

That place for me is Cannon Hall Gardens.

I am blessed to have such a beautiful place so close to where I live being their is my magic therapy.

  • Listen to the birds

  • Smell the roses

  • Look at the flowers

  • Feel the sun on your skin

  • Watch the clouds in the sky

  • Spot the squirrel

  • Sit and rest a while

  • Feel in the moment

  • Every season brings its own pleasures

  • Even the wilting flowers bring me joy

The Fairy Garden

Especially the fairy garden that hold so many special memories over the years. In sitting on the bench, closing my eye, taking deep breaths and making wishes. It is the special place I dreamed of being creative and made plans for the future in discovery creativity heals and developing my business Creative Wellness Journey.

It reminds me of a secret garden filled with aromas, natures noises, flowers, plants and trees.

Delights of the gardens

The landscaping and garden design at Cannon Hall is truly amazing and changes each season so their is always something worth seeing.

As I get older all I want to do is surround myself with places and experiences that are good for me and good for my soul.

To be able to restart and refocus as many times as I need.

To be surrounded by people who are authentic and true, who get excited about your plans.

In creating a life that feels good on the inside not just look good on the outside.

Behind the scenes

Imagine a shed with tools of all kinds and getting together with friends to immerse yourself in nature finding your green fingers.

How would you like to help people in very ordinary ways – reassuring them that they are in the right place and guiding them through the garden, what flowers and plants, the names of trees.

Why not check out and see if you could write, create or inspire others with your knowledge, hints and tips.

Creativity comes in many forms and nature is a great inspiration being in a garden sat on your own watching the work go by, or sharing the experience with friends or strangers you meet along the way.

Art therapy is like nature and has existed throughout the ages, just the same way as musical expression or communicating with nature heals the human psyche and physiology.

How would you like to be creative?
