We have a Mary / rosary garden at our Church.I helped pick out flowers whose colors coincide with the colors of the different mysteries Luminous mysteries-purple; glorious yellow/gold; Sorrowful-Red; Joyful-white.Then I picked flowers with Marian connotations or related to Jesus.
For instance, I picked a yellow coreopsis with a fleck of red in the middle.It medieval parlance it was called"Christ’s eye" the red symbolizing the Blood in Jesus’ eye after He was beaten. White Madonna Lilies and so forth.
Mary garden... sounds familiar:D
One day I would like to have a nice garden like this one... with statues and benches and lots of trees, you know, a place where you can just sit and pray or read, wind down. It's almost like there's no silence in the world any more!
Devotional flower arranging or cooking is a bit complex for me. The rosary works fine for me.
its a (usually) simpler variation of having a stations of the Cross.
less expensive, and less "things" to be stolen
I've never heard of this either. But it sounds like a beautiful way to have a holy reminder of our Blessed Mother. Thanks for posting about this.:)
