Gardener’s Delight 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

There is something for everyone at the local garden centre. As Polly and her husband stock up on plants for their flower beds the children pick out their favourite pots. And of course, no trip would be complete without a stop off at the tearoom for a jam and cream scone! This 1000 piece puzzle has been illustrated by Tony Ryan.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, Gardener’s Delight uses 100% recycled puzzle board, vegetable inks and FSC paper. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, Gibsons use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.

About the Artist Tony Ryan

Tony Ryan decided he wanted to be an artist when he saw a programme on the commercial artist’s life when he was just twelve years old. Leaving school at 16, he went to Bolton Art College to study Illustration and Design, and then did a Postgraduate course in Illustration at Bristol. He is now a freelance illustrator and experiments with watercolour, gouache, oil and pastels. In recent years he has taken courses to develop his interest in printmaking and Japanese woodcut and many of his paintings are influenced by his own personal life and memories of when he was growing up in Lancashire.

Find Your Zen with Mindful Slow Entertainment

Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to unwind. They demand attention which makes doing them, both absorbing and meditative at the same time. When concentrating on creative pursuits like art, craft or indeed jigsaw puzzles, you subconsciously tune out other distracting thoughts. In essence, your mind goes blank. Furthermore this quieting of the mind is highly therapeutic and forms the basis of meditation practice in eastern religions and philosophies. In Zen Buddhism, every action can become a source of meditation. From simply walking to making things, to doing jigsaws. The art of Zen is to dedicate your mind and thoughts only to the action that you are doing now.
