Another from our London trip. You MUST go if it is possible. It is 'Blood Red Lands and Seas of Red', an installation of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London by Paul Cummins to commemorate 100 years since the outbreak of World War I.
It is being 'built' by a team of helpers and they hope to have 800,000 by November 11th for Remembrance Day. Poppies can be bought and will be sent by the beginning of the new year once the installation is dismantled.
It completely took my breath away. Seeing so much red, each flower representing a life lost, it will be over-whelming by November. The Royal British Legion has the poppy as it's emblem so I felt it a good opportunity to share the photo under 'Home Grown'.
