War Memorial: Poppies @ The Tower

I went to The City the other day, and stopped by the Tower of London to see the poppies. For anyone not aware of the installation, a ceramic poppy was created for each of the British and Colonial dead in World War one, and these almost fill the moat. In some ways the war memorial was almost more moving as the poppies started to flow out of the Tower, into a sea of blood, and before they were all in place, but it is still well worth making the effort to visit. The poppies will be in situ until Remembrance Day in November.
