NotesMount Saint Alban, Washington, D. C. An Easter garden surrounds the font. Flowering fruit branches trace their patterns against the red damask dossal, their containers hidden by Pieris Japonica and rose bushes. The effect of bedding is achieved with painted wooden boxes lined with tar-paper. Lilies, symbolic of the Resurrection, the ivy of eternity, hyacinths and azaleas complete the planting.
