I love poppies so when I heard about what they are doing at The Tower of London in remembrance of the First World War, I knew I had to go. For those of you overseas this photo will tell you about it.
Lucky for me I have a friend who lives a short train journey away from central London, so Madam and I invited ourselves for a sleepover. We arrived at the Tower nice and early and were met with a spectacular sight, I spent most of the day with a lump in my throat. The poppies were amazing. These are the ones you can see from the outside

At the drawbridge the poppies weave and float up over the bridge, beautiful
They will ‘plant’ the last poppy on the 11th of November, they will then be taken up, packaged up and sent out to those that have purchased them. I am one of the lucky ones that will receive one and I can’t wait. So glad I got to see this.
(PS Blister is on the mend, cut off the dead skin this morning, (no photos!), toe nail is getting backer by the day, but did manage an interval session with Madam this morning)
