Back in the sixties and seventies they lived by the ‘Flower Power’ mantra - who would have thought those tree hugging hippies were actually onto something?
Flowers have been scientifically proven to lay claim to a whole host of special powers – everything from lifting our mood and boosting happiness, to improving our performance at work and enhancing our memory.
As the days get shorter and the temperature drops there’s no doubting that we’re all in need of a bit of cheering up. It has been revealed that more than half of all Brits have considered moving away from their hometown to avoid dreary weather and drab surrounds getting them down.
Wolverhampton was one of eight cities visited as part of the tour.
A customised Routemaster tour bus was fitted with a special device that unleashed a Flower Power Shower on Wolverhampton. Thousands of petals rained down to brighten the city - and people’s days. A thousand flowers were also given away to delighted passersby.
