There was added poignancy to planting polyanthus plants at a Norwich church for a group of City College Norwich students.
Seven Foundation Learning Horticulture students planted the flowers in beds outside St Stephens Church, in Theatre Street, as part of their work with Norwich in Bloom yesterday.
The ongoing project sees students revive and replenish the flower beds with plants that they have grown in the college's greenhouses.
The work was carried out following the recent death of one of the church's parishioners, Vic Howe, who worked alongside the students on the church grounds.
Mr Howe left £500 for the group in his will, which will go towards funding their residential trip later this year.

Lecturer John Attoe said: 'The students really enjoy working within the community and having the opportunity to display their plants in an area that is seen by thousands of people.
'Mr Howe will be missed by the students and staff who worked with him and we would like to dedicate this floral display to his memory.'
