Floral Delights amid the Epidemic
Impacted by the novel coronavirus epidemic, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department announced in early February the cancellation of the Hong Kong Flower Show 2020 originally scheduled to be held from 6 to 15 March at Victoria Park, in order to reduce social contacts and the risk of the spread of the virus in the community. The potted flowers (about 13,000 plants) formerly intended for display at the Flower Show were then promptly distributed to more than 40 housing estates of the Housing Department (HD) by its Horticulture Unit. Such a move is not only environmentally-friendly, but also helps beautify the surroundings. Estate residents staying at home are cheered up by the arrays of heartwarming flowers amid the epidemic.
The floral delights are attractive and uplifting. In our fight against the epidemic, let us remain united and we will surely overcome the adversity.
