Beautiful but sad. It looks like a river of blood. 😦 I wish peace would prevail the world over.
Me too, it was incredibly moving to watch volunteers placing the ceramic poppies. Apparently 888,246 are going to be planted, one for very british soldier lost during the 1914 – 1918 war.
I’m really keen to visit this, an astonishing sight.
There is more infomation on the Historic Royal palaces site http://poppies.hrp.org.uk/about-the-installation We visited last Sunday whilst taking part in Freecycle and it was a very busy day. Hoping to get the chance to visit again.
Thank you Julie. Did you enjoy the cycle?
We loved it, its our second year of taking part, London looked really beautiful and the route goes past the Tower of London.
Beautiful picture, and a fitting tribute as well as a warning.
Its quite something to see and after the installation is complete the poppies are being sold for £25.00 each and the monies raised divided between 6 service charities.
A stunning sight, indeed.
Its very moving to see, we are going to visit again before its completed in October.
