Planting a Mary Garden
Speedwell: This plant is also known as Mary's Resting Place. A legend tells that its blossoms marked each spot where the Blessed Mother rested during the flight into Egypt.
Star of Bethlehem: The shape of the flower is said to resemble the star that the Magi followed to find the Christ Child.
Snowdrop: The snowdrop is said to have bloomed in February when Mary took Jesus to the temple to present him to God.
Rosemary: It is believed that Mary hung the linens of the Holy Child on the rosemary bush to dry. Afterwards, the bush carried a sweet aroma.
