Mary Garden

We began our very first Mary Garden on Mother's Day, 2008. My dear husband and children gave me this garden statue for Mother's Day so it was the perfect start to our garden. As a family we were recently consecrated to our Blessed Mother so this was also a fitting way to honor her! We began shopping for flowers according to a Mary Garden website that I found. There are so many neat meanings that it was very hard to choose! We tried to stick with varieties that would do well in our area. Here are a few of the beginning photos!

I especially LOVED the children's idea to plant the flowers in the shape of a cross!
Completed Project!


This has since become a Mother's Day Tradition in our home!
"The more we honor the Blessed Virgin, the more we honor Jesus Christ, because we honor Mary only that we may the more perfectly honor Jesus, since we go to her only as the way by which we are to find the end we are seeking, which is Jesus."
~St. Louis De Montfort~
