Last weekend my friend Alex managed to arrange for a group of us to go plant poppies around the Tower of London.
View from the public walkway by Tower Hill underground station – the sign explains the installation.
Michaela – our team leader – who lives in the Tower! Those windows behind in the wall are her windows. Her Dad is a yeoman and looks after the Tower’s Ravens. She had lots of stories to tell us about life inside the Tower!
The way the poppies have been designed it looks like a sea – all different heights and scalloped edges – including little insets like this one.
