Gardening Saints

Saint Fiacre and Saint Dorothy:


Patron Saints of Gardening

Lettered into the border of each window:

The kiss of the sun for pardon,
the song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
than anywhere else on Earth.

From The Lord God Made a Garden

By Dorothy Gurney 1858 - 1932
