Wildflowers and Churches

The Tablet published my article on May, flowers and Mary.  We have lost 97% of our wildflower habitat in the last 30 years.Flowers of the Rarest

And some churches are doing their bit. St Birinus in Dorchester-on-Thames are just about to create a Mary Garden, a garden made of wildflowers that are associated with Our Lady.  I'll be recording a piece for Sunday on BBC Radio 4 this week which will be broadcast this Sunday (May 20th)
No 02 Spring 06

Mary's Garens exist already in some churchyards, for example St Birinus told me about St Mary de Haura, Horsham

Here is some info from them:
