My Mary With Her Roses
This photo is of my Mary garden, with the beautiful pink roses sheltering Mary.
I bought this rose bush long ago at a university plant sale, and don't recall its name, but it flourishes in very little sun. Hurray. At her feet are primroses and a prostrate rosemary.
There are 100 plants with Mary stories, including roses, primroses, rosemary, marigold, calendula, forget me not, snowdrop, carnation, clematis and so many more.
I love to see Mary at the back of the garden, with some sunlight shining on her, and when I see her statue she inspires me to pray in my garden.
Do any of you have a Mary garden?
