St Cross Hospital’s garden
Have you ever heard that really tacked, psycho-babble advice about “going to your happy place” … ? I’m sure you have. I’ve never been quite sure what that means, or where my happy place is. But then we visited the gardens at St Cross Hospital, and I knew that the next time I was troubled, I could close my eyes and imagine myself back in this lovely garden. Perhaps it’s not happy enough, but it was certainly serene. There was a deep fish pond, that the brothers used to stock and tend, as well as a great hedge and amazing trees.
