VOLUNTEER gardeners at the newly opened Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull marked the first week of spring by planting a variety of seasonal flowers.
Some of the nine-strong team of volunteers grabbed their gloves and trowels and set about re-planting primroses, snowdrops and daffodils at the hospice gate - flowers they had removed from the old hospice.
Volunteer Barbara Baker said: "Twelve years ago at this time we planted the same flowers to mark the opening of the new garden at the old hospice so it's a nice symmetry that we are here again outside our new hospice planting some primroses, daffodils and snowdrops that we brought with us from the old hospice.
"We hope they will bring some spring cheer to people arriving here for many years to come.”
