I’m a fan of Mary Gardens. At least in theory.

When it comes to the details, though, I get a little fuzzy.

First, I have to figure out a budget for buying all those special plants. Then, I have to make the time to actually do it. And there’s sure to be more steps, and I’m sure to forget something.

It is with my own lazy streak firmly in place that I offer you these tips for a Mary Garden even I can handle.

I share my “secrets” over at Columbus Catholic Women this week.
