Photographer's Note

On 15 August is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but in Poland it is also named the Feast of Our Lady of Herbs.
Herbs, vegetables and other greenery sometimes interwoven with a few flowers from the fields and gardens, are brought to church and are blessed by the priest.

I took the picture in the village of Ludzmierz (about 85 km south of Krakow). There is the Sanctuary known as the Hostess of Podhale there. The Podhale (literally "under Mountain meadows") is Poland's most southern region.
