Planting a Mary Garden
Center of Focus
It is Catholic tradition to acknowledge and honor the unselfish and holy life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, particularly in the month of May. A special way of doing this is to plant a Mary Garden that you can enjoy all summer long!
In the middle ages, missionaries and travelers spread stories across Europe about flowers named after Mary and various other times of her life. Mary Gardens that featured these flowers became popular there, and later the tradition made its way to America.
