Pansy! For David Morley

Here are some more images of the installation. Above the thin pink line of pansies outside Southbank Centre, over the next few days they will come into full bloom. The installation appears to be surviving the wind and cold weather, many people have voiced concerns about the pansies in these temperatures; they will be fine, I have known them to thrive after being covered by inches of snow.
The small tree, above and below stands out along the Southbank and looks wonderful with the pansies surounding it as does the bin; for me it is the oddness of the bins and bollards being trimmed with pansies that transforms the municipal planting plan into an artwork.
