First Blossoms From My Garden and a Blessing

O almighty everlasting God we beseech thee to bless these flowers... that there may be in them goodness, virtue, tranquility, peace, victory, abundance of good things, the plenitude of blessing, thanksgiving to God the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost, and a most pleasing commemoration of the glorious Mother of God, that they may put forth an odor of virtue and sweetness.
-Servite rite for the blessing of flowers for the Coronation of Mary's images on Holy Saturday.

Just found this great little blessing and more information about Mary Gardens at this site:
