A Field Of Daffodils Opened Up In London Today And It Looks Beautiful

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;

Today, a field of hand-made daffodils opened up in Paternoster Square (home to the First Dates restaurant and St Paul’s).  This immersive installation is called ‘The Garden of Light’ and is comprised of exactly 2,100 daffodils, representing each and every Marie Curie nurse and is part of the wider daffodil appeal for the charity. It incorporates audio messages from those who have benefited from Marie Curie’s end-of-life care as well as the opportunity, not only to contribute by buying a Daffodil Pin, but also to write a message on the Visitor’s Wall. Here’s a few of our favourite images from the opening day…

 

London rain will never wilt these hand-made flowers…

 

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze…


 

Daffodils being divas…

Could any field have a more a iconic setting?

It’s a garden of love tended by nurses…

 

And the only garden that blossoms at night…
