They get their blooming bridge in London!

Yes they will!

 

The Garden Bridge will, accordning to Wierd, span the 1,204 foot-wide river and contain 2 million pounds of soil, have 270 trees, as well as shrubs, bushes, and flowers. The project is led by actress Joanna Lumley, she labored for over a decade establishing a trust to secure financing and political support. In 2012 she turned to architect Thomas Heatherwick, who crafted the cauldron for the London Olympics and successfully redesigned the city’s iconic double-decker buses, to help make it a reality. Heatherwick says:

We need to hold up this large weight, complete with worms, rainwater and decomposing leafy mulch, without letting the bridge structure become visually more important than the garden. To do this and not resort to tall steel columns and cables that compete with the trees on the bridge, we are bunching all our structure underneath the garden around the two river columns.
