What classic American holiday’s origin is Fairmont, Virginia in 1908? Father’s Day! Father’s Day was first celebrated for 210 fathers lost in a mining disaster.
I’m certainly not an avid gardener like my mother, but I do like my outdoor spaces to be pleasant and inviting . . . a nice place outside to rest, and to read or pray from time to time. There is just something about a soft breeze or a starry night that allows the senses to move the soul heavenward. I thought I would encourage this effect even more by creating my own Marian garden, that is, surrounding a beautiful outdoor Mary statue with lots of beautiful garden plants.
