A fitting memorial

It's been amazing to see thousands of people, young and old, making their way to the striking art installation at the Tower of London which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1.

Poignant poppies : Nearly 900,000 ceramic poppies have been planted in the moat at the Tower of London

Called, Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, the Tower's iconic moat is slowly being filled with 888,246 ceramic poppies, each one representing a British soldier who died during the four year conflict.
Of course, the half term holiday and gorgeous weather has helped draw the crowds but it's still heart-warming to see so much attention, and interest, in a project which started in August and ends on Armistice Day, November 11th.
There's still a little time left to see the poppies before they're dismantled so have a look here for further information: http://poppies.hrp.org.uk
