This is a special garden I'm creating just outside the window by our kitchen table. It is a garden that honors Mary, the mother of Jesus. In the middle of the garden is a small statue of
Mary and baby Jesus. The plants in this area all have traditional names associated with Mary, or some theological topic. Also, I limited myself to flowers in white and blue, which are Mary's colors in traditional
Christian symbolism. Because truly blue flowers are so difficult to obtain, I'm using purple as a substitute for blue. I think this is another appropriate color for the Queen of All Saints. My goal is to have
something blue/purple and something white in bloom continuously throughout the growing season. It may take a few years to reach this goal!
