Your Beginning Mary Garden

The Flowers of Our Lady were devotionally named as symbols of the life, virtues and mysteries of the Blessed Virgin and her Divine Son in the oral traditions of the medieval countrysides - circulated by itinerate preachers, mendicant friars, wandering minstrels, roving players, pilgrims, merchants, missionaries and other travelers.
In our modern Information Age, these old flower names are being circulated again: now through the print media, and electronically via the Internet throughout the entire world - from which devoted individuals learn of them and spread the custom of growing them in their parishes.
These are the loveliest of her litanies, These are gardens where the glad abounding earth Still gush the Holy Spirit's primal mirth In endlessly renewed diversities These from the faithful and fecund soil Are generations that have called her blest, They magnify her always without rest While man's sad cyclic ages still uncoil.
