Health care workers on the front lines of the fight against the coronavirus were greeted with a sight of spring Friday when flowers were arranged in the shape of a heart outside one Boston hospital.

Florists donated the hydrangeas, daffodils and other flowers placed outside Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to show their appreciation for the medical workers. Many of the daffodils were supposed to line the route of the Boston Marathon, which was pushed to September due to the virus, The Boston Globe reported.

“Plants make people happy, and if we can bring a smile to their faces after a 12-hour shift, let’s do it,” said Jan Goodman, the owner of a Boston-based flower company who came up with the idea, told the newspaper.
