Healing Garden

Yesterday my son-in-law had a hip replacement.The operation went well.
Hubby and I stayed with our daughter at the hospital all day and while there we went and spent some time in the Healing Garden. This area was lovely and I took some photos to share it with everyone.
The hospital is called The Mater and is run by the Sisters of Mercy.

Our son-in-law's room overlooks the Healing Garden. It was lovely sitting on the cushions in front of the waterfall in the sunshine.
I hope you enjoyed the little tour of this special place.
Have a good day
God Bless

  1. Hi Barb,
    Glad everything went went well with Mark hope he is well soon. The garden looks lovely just to place to sit and relax.

  2. You're right - it's a lovely hospital, Barb!
    I've never seen one with such a beautiful space in it before.
    Hopefully it helps many people to stop stressing and find a quiet hope for future healing for themselves or loved ones.
    The white decor and green plants is very serene.
    Thanks for linking it up to share with us :-)
    love and hugs..Trish xox
