Mary’s Flowers

July 29, 2018 9:07 PM | Cursillo Communications (Administrator)

In The Middle Ages, the Christian faithful grew reminders of Mary, Mother of God in their gardens.

Each herb represented one of her virtues. Foxglove was our lady’s drying plant, primrose our lady’s keys and lily of the valley our lady’s tears. This tradition gave rise to the familiar Mary’s gold (marigold and virgins bower (clematis).
