Mary Flowers on the World Wide Web

By Ann Zlotnik

The early nineties introduced many to the World Wide Web including John S. Stokes Jr. He had compiled pages and pages of research on Mary gardens. He had plant lists, news articles, correspondence, photographs and so much more. He wanted to share this information and grow his Mary’s Gardens Movement. Stokes, a retired engineer, social justice advocate and passionate Mary gardener, created a website that he titled “Mary’s Flowers and Gardens.”

Stokes donated his extensive website to the Marian Library, it was transferred in 2010 and housed as a subsection of the Mary Page. When the decision was made to refresh the Mary Page and transform it into the encyclopedic tool now known as All About Mary, Stokes’ web content was to be included. In 2016, Stokes’ content was categorized and placed within the All About Mary structure, but maintains an identity of its own. The content on these pages has not been changed or updated and remains original to Stokes’ website.

Spring is here and with it comes gardening. If you are looking for Mary flowers that will grow well in Arizona, flowers of Mary’s sorrows, instructions on how to plant an indoor Mary dish garden, and so on, simply visit go.udayton.edu/allaboutmary and learn from the master Mary gardener, John Stokes.
