Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, by artist Paul Cummins, is a very poignant memorial work commemorating the First World War. The installation fills the moat of the Tower of London, and is made up of thousands of ceramic poppies. Each poppy has been individually added to the "sea", with each flower representing one of the 888,246 British servicemen and women who lost their lives during WW1. The final poppy will be planted on Armistice Day. All of the poppies have now been sold, but you might like to make a dedication at poppies.hrp.org.uk in honour of a loved one who served, or is still serving, in the military
Wordless Wednesday is a fun way to meet new bloggers. Just post a photo on your blog (words are optional, though I'm not too good at silence!) then add a link to your post in the Linky below. You can link up with other WW participants this week by clicking on one or more of the thumbnails and, in case you've missed any, click here to see some of my previous WW posts. If you have time please leave a comment as I love to hear from you. Happy Wordless Wednesday!
