Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

By Soom
I don't know that I can find the words to do this stunning sight justice.
Along with hundreds maybe thousands of other people from all walks of life we decided to visit the Tower of London to see 'The Poppies', and I have to say the sight that greeted us was breath-taking. Very worth the visit, and even with the huge crowds we got some tremendous pictures of this marvellous spectacle, this piece of current history in the making, commemorating the history of 100 years ago.
The 'army' of volunteers were very hard at work still planting the 888,246 hand-made ceramic poppies with the last one due to be planted on Remembrance Day.
Feeling very privileged not only to have seen this glorious piece of work in the flesh, but to be one of the lucky people to have purchased one of the poppies, which will be cherished for a lifetime to remember the reason for all that it stands for.
