Garden Description:This is a new garden begun in 2013/14 so very much work in progress. We are creating secluded corners for reflection. It is NOT an immaculate NGS type garden.We have a Quiet room for inclement weather which seats 7 comfortably though we have hosted 10. It leads directly into the garden and has its own loo and tea making facilities plus small collection of books. We also have a Garden Guest room (double bed) leading directly into the garden for overnight stays.There is a summer house for quiet reflection and lots of seating.
The aim is to enable individuals and small groups looking for space to do their own thing as well as host quiet days /afternoons for local groups eg in Advent.
We are surrounded by good walks and a 15 minute stroll through the nature reserve at the bottom of the lane leads to the sea and an unspoilt beach. Beaumaris is a 5 minute drive along the coast. Anglesey enjoys a very mild climate and has many places of great beauty so enjoying creation is easy here.
Wendy is a Third order Franciscan and we have 2 small dogs as well as free range ex battery hens.
This Lent we are planting a small Crocus labyrinth at the top of the steps leading up from the Quiet room– snowdrops around the perimeter will show first followed by blue crocuses. The Design is simple – a double Celtic spiral. It can be walked in 27 steps. This was chance but divided by 3 gives 9 stops for 9 verses of the Franciscan canticle of the creatures. The next step is to make a marker stone for each stop. Francis based the canticle on the song of the three in the story of Daniel so 3 steps for each stop seems right with the other symbolic references to 3. White and blue could remind the walker of the Angelus. A broken Mirror in the middle reflects the walkers face on starting. It should be ready for the first weekend after Easter.
