A little humanity in a crazy world

On Monday local resident Cath Miller wrote "Hello. I am currently in a Lewisham Hospital ward overlooking Ladywell Fields and enjoying looking out onto the Park each day. In the bed next to me is a woman who has terminal cancer and keeps looking out for signs of Spring bulbs. I wonder if it might be possible to make her happy and put some e.g. crocuses in pots along the river so they can be seen from the Hospital ward?  She only has a few days left in here and our window is 5 down on the right from the bridge between the Park and the Hospital. Thank you."

A number of kind residents responded within hours and now there are blooms aplenty visible from the Hospital.  Thank you to all those people, and to Glendale for facilitating this.  See the full story on the Ladywell Fields Facebook page.
