Evelyn’s DIY ‘Mary Garden'

Recently, on my website Seven Ninety-Seven "Home Of The Bargain Queen", I wrote several articles about creating a Mary Garden. On that site, I wrote that the creation of the garden was my most ambitious DIY project to date. It has been a seven-month project that began with the removal of what appeared to be a decade of dry, dead oak leaves from the three trees back there.

Although never complete (I mean what garden is really complete) this garden was a labor of love in which my only helper was my husband, Stanley. I think we did well for an elderly couple both pushing toward age 70.

Now that the basic design of the garden is an actuality, I am looking forward to its continual growth and beauty. Below is a photo of Mother Mary in the garden. To see the progress of the whole garden that also a statue of Saint Francis of Assisi, click the link above.
