Commemorating Robert Burns, 2021

Most  years the Burns Club of London places a wreath at the base of the statute of the Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-1796) in Embankment Gardens, Westminster, London, on the anniversary of his birth, 25 January. In 2021 this was not done, and the statute had only a single red rose left on its plinth, presumably referring to Burns’ most famous poem, ‘My love is like a red, red rose’.
