Flower arrangers around the East of England are preparing little bunches of flowers which they're going to leave around the region on Friday 1st May for people to find.
The National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies is marking National Flower Arranging Day by leaving 60,000 'lonely bouquets' across the country.
Some will be in phone boxes, some on park benches and others in various random locations. More than 40 flower clubs in the region are taking part in the event.
Organisers say it's a kind of goodwill gesture that involves leaving a bouquet in a public place to be picked up by an unsuspecting passerby.
The motivation is to bring a smile to someone’s face.
