Saint Fiacre – Patron Saint of Gardening

Saint Fiacre
The world of gardening is full of legends and one of my favorites is that of Saint Fiacre, the Irish Patron Saint of Gardening. Here he is in my garden among the fall color of a hydrangea. He has a prominent place and welcomes visitors. With our cool and wet weather, he has developed moss on his face which adds more character.

This holiday season, I send you good wishes and happy gardening in 2012!
