London photo: planting poppies at the Tower of London

poppies1

Last month I posted a photo from the WWI memorial installation “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” by artist Paul Cummins taking shape at the Tower of London. Yesterday, I did a shift as one of the volunteers who are “planting” the ceramic flowers in the moat… which is not a place most people ever get to visit. I’ll be sharing up-close photos from the work and the poppies all week.

share and enjoy
