A care home in Manor Park stopped to smell the roses last week as it celebrated International Flower Day.
Residents of Mornington Hall Care Home tried their hands as florists and explored the art of flower arranging while enjoying a cuppa and a chat.
Rosemarie Evans, who lives at the home in Whitta Road, described the smell of the flowers as “a little taste of summer”.
At the suggestion of one of the residents, the bright and colourful vases of arrangements they produced have been put on display at reception so visitors can see them.
Mornington Hall care home manager Pervine King said: "I love flowers and these really do put a smile on everyone’s face when arriving at reception.
