This Tuesday 23rd of March marks the anniversary of the first national lockdown. The Royal Horticultural Society is partnering with Marie Curie to show support for this day of reflection.
We are still in a national lockdown and today marks the anniversary since the first lockdown. It is a national day to reflect on all those who have died during the Covid 19 pandemic . As a nation, we have suffered a huge collective loss. Every death has been devastating for their relatives and friends left behind. Many have been unable to say a proper final goodbye to their loved ones, or even to comfort each other with a hug.
Today, we are showing our support for all those bereaved during the pandemic.
The arrival of Spring always fills us with optimism for a brighter future, and no flower epitomises Spring more than the humble daffodil. We all have room for some daffodils, even in a container or windowbox.
Take a walk down Duckpond Lane and see all the lovely daffodils planted near the trees, enjoy all the Spring flowers in the Rose Garden and stop for a sit on a bench. Spare a moment or two to reflect on the last year and all those who have lost their lives during the pandemic. Soon lockdown rules will end, and we will be able to meet our friends and families and look forward to making plans for the future, which can only be brighter.
