Nature Heals

I have been at my mum’s the past two nights, as I have been painting her bedroom walls and ceiling. I go home tonight and I shall do my own thing tomorrow, which will be a day at Southwell. So while at Southwell, I will no doubt look in Southwell Minster while there too.

This morning, while needing to do a couple of things, I also needed to be in nature, to refresh. So I went to Sutton Lawn. After calling in The Rumbles cafe and a wander around this park, I had a sit back on a bench I once sat on before and just take it all in for half an hour. This photo below, I taken from this very bench I sat at, a couple of years back, which I shared in a post.

The photos below, I took today from the same spot and very near by, when I started making my way back in town.

Nature heals and I needed it this morning.

    1. Thank you. I just took these with my phone. I think the other photo from a couple of years ago was taken with a phone too. But can’t remember to be honest. πŸ™‚

      It’s been hard coming back through village; Stanton Hill, where I lived as a child, to be at my mum’s, where she lives, in Skegby. And as you know I have been this way often.
      But being on Sutton Lawn, away from the village of Stanton Hill and instead in the town centre, of Sutton-in-Ashfield area is much easier than that way, while I am not in my area where I now live.

    1. It certainly is relaxing here. As it’s been a while since I have been on now not living local there, I could see some things done that were an improvement for the park. This is one part of my old local area I don’t mind coming back to, because it is so relaxing. I so needed it this morning. πŸ™‚

    1. It is a beautiful place to go, in the Sutton-in-Ashfield area. There are more beautiful places, but it’s only this one I would go back to when in the area.
      That last image I have tried to take with a camera before, but couldn’t achieve what I wanted, which was as how I seen it. Taking it with my camera’s phone, I achieved that today.

      I wanted to create this post today as a reminder how nature can heal us at difficult times. It’s free and yet it does so much good. πŸ™‚

      1. Hugging or even leaning up against a tree will increase that healing experience. Trees love it when humans touch them.
        Your pictures did tell a beautiful story.

      2. Been close and touched a tree, or sat under a tree, but I’ve never hugged, but can imagine the healing from hugging a tree. Glad you liked the post with the pictures. X

      1. I have a park near me that makes me feel at peace too. Sitting by the lake and little waterfalls and listening to breeze move the leaves it he trees… No other feeling like that. I also love watching the squirells run about. I always brings them nuts when I go there.
