Long Description:
Per the web page:

"This garden is a memorial to St. Clare of Assisi (c. 1193-1253), religious mystic and follower of apostolic poverty, spiritual friend of St. Francis, and the first woman in Western Europe to compose a rule of religious life for women. The garden contains plants arranged in five main groups to portray the stages of Clare's life."

"The garden was installed at Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, California, in 2003, the 750th anniversary of the death of St. Clare. Funds for the construction of the garden were donated by Bill Nicholson and his family in memory of Ruth Nicholson."

The dedication plaque reads as follows:

"This Saint Clare Garden is donated to the university in loving memory of Ruth Nicholson. She was a loving wife, a wonderful mother to our children, a friend to so many people. She was a loyal Santa Claran. Please say an extra prayer.
