recycled plastic bottles make magnificent Birthday Blooms for the Queen

Artist Sarah-Jane Richards shows me the Birthday in Blooms artwork at King's Gardens
This morning I cycled over to King's Gardens to open a new art installation. The project, led by Sarah-Jane Richards, used re-cycled plastic bottles to create  'birthday blooms' for the Queen. It was truly impressive and shows how art and imagination can transform something as humble as a discarded fizzy drinks bottle.

The blooms were painted by all manner of folk including students from The Learning Rooms, Bridge Inn Farm , Holy FamilyRC Primary School , Holy Trinity CofE Primary School, Merefield School, along with 1st Southport Cub pack, Go with the Flow art group and visitors to the garden. All 500 were hand painted and make a magnificent site.
