Richard Gaisford, Chief Correspondent, Good Morning Britain, shared a video of a woman planting flowers in Kyiv. She is hopeful that things are going to get better. “’War is war, but flowers still need to be planted’ - the view of a Kyiv city gardener, bringing spring colour to the city. She’s hopeful that conflict will be over soon and wants the capital looking beautiful again,” Gaisford wrote sharing the video.
Once the war is over, the blooming of flowers will herald the beginning of newer and hopefully more peaceful and better times.
