These purple crocuses are a symbol of the ‘End Polio Now’ campaign to raise public awareness of the effort to eradicate Polio worldwide. Started in 1985 by Rotary the campaign has come a long way with the worldwide inoculation program and is close to the goal for this dangerous disease.

Look out for a fine purple display in the spring.
