to God's request
she replied yes; our Mary
"full of grace"

"full of grace"
the maiden wooed co-redemptrix

Happy Season of Advent

The Periwinkle - Vinca rosea - Virgin Flower, symbolism: Mary's Humility... is native to Madagascar; and widely naturalized in the tropics...If the leaves are eaten by a man and a woman together, it will cause love between them and they will stay in love all their lives...

I didn't know that about Periwinkles. They are so delicate, yet hardy plants. They grow wild here in FL, but you can also purchase them. We have a few...wonder if we should eat them? :) Thanks for the history.

Periwinkle too! I love learning about all the flowers of Mary. I think someday, I will have to have a garden full of her flowers.

Lovely story of the periwinkle. So romantic. I knew there was a reason why it was my favorite shade of blue.
