The Simple Sunflower Project Brings Joy To Hospital Patients
SACHA PFEIFFER, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Sacha Pfeiffer. When the wedding party is over, Eleanor Love gets to work. The Virginia-based doctor collects leftover flowers and brings them to patients at her hospital - with permission, of course.

After all, studies show flowers can help patients heal. It's MORNING EDITION.
