Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

Posted on Nov 7, 2014 in Travel

I am in London this week and took a trip over to the Tower of London to visit the 880,000 individually lit poppies that line the famous moat.

The work which is called, “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” involves an artist, progressively placing individual red poppies in the moat; a single poppy for every British soldier that died in WWI.

It is a pretty touching site to see close to 1 million lit poppies underneath the tower.  The project started in August and the artist will finish in 2 weeks time.
