Welcome to Our Blog

Medieval Christians considered Mary the ‘New Eve’ and prayed to her to keep their gardens rich and fertile. For this reason, many flowers, herbs, and fruit became associated with Our Lady.

Mary is still an important figure in the hearts of Christians today. She brought hope, joy and beauty into the world and a Mary Garden is a wonderful way to honor her.

Please enjoy our blogs about Mary, prayer and gardening! You can also find us on our sister organization Family Rosary Blog.
