I want a Mary garden or a Rosary garden. I’ve been wanting it for years and this is THE year. I mean it. I’m tired of waiting. That ugly patch of weeds in front of the house just screams “Make this beautiful, please!” And so does the jungle in the back yard. So I will. I started gathering ideas for one a while back, well before that awful year of 2018. I’ll see if I can find any of those ideas. If not, I’ll start over. But it’s gonna get done! I hope.
Have you ever seen a Mary garden? Do you have one? Got any photos? Or tips for a newbie like me? Bear in mind, I need something low low LOW maintenance. And someone else will have to set it up for me. (This is so not the way I imagined owning a home would be, but what can ya do?)
I found a bunch of articles at the University of Dayton Marian studies site. (That place is a treasure trove of all things Mary.)
Here’s a search for Mary gardens at the Dayton site.
And here’s a page of Marian symbols > Mary gardens
An article at EWTN about Mary gardens
A Catholic mom’s post about her Mary garden with photos. I love this!
And this, too.
