May Crowning

This picture isn't good at all (I took it with my phone camera), but it shows the Lady Chapel filled with flowers from the school children, with the statue of Our Lady of the Atonement crowned. And yes, we sang the old standby:

Bring flow'rs of the fairest,
Bring flow'rs of the rarest,
From garden and woodland
And hillside and vale;
Our full hearts are swelling,
Our glad voices telling
The praise of the loveliest
Rose of the vale.

O Mary! we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels, Queen of the May,
O Mary! we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels, Queen of the May.
