'Shrubs and daffodils are planted in , some of -the most valuable land .in the city, London's financial district. The most valuable flowerbed in England thrives in brapefsgardens, 1 Throgmorton avenue, one of the his* toric thoroughfares neat Threadneedle street and the Bank of England.

Outside in Princes street there is noise, dustr grime. The gloomy walls of the Bank of England do little to brighten the picture. But in the garden hyacinths and daffodils raise their heads above even- the .all-pervading London soot, and the goMen sparkle of a daffodil in the spring sunshine has helped to stabilize many a financier's blood pressure. ' The financial center of the British Empire, like the menu in a London restiirant, it still largely governed by tradition.
