Red at Anfield, of course

Now a football ground might not be the place you’d expect to find flower beds and planting, but that’s exactly what we did find in the approach to the Hillsborough memorial in the grounds of Anfield. I remember watching the tragedy as it unfurled at the time, and no doubt we’re all aware of the fight for justice, which still continues, that the families are facing.

I’d expected the memorial to be moving, and it was. What I wasn’t expecting to find was flowers, red of course, on the approach to the memorial. The crocosmias added to the poignancy I think and I suspect they’re ‘Red King’ rather than the more usual Lucifer variety.

Either way, they were in flower and looked great and somehow added to the tribute and helped set the mood for the space.
