Stunning display of poppies at The Tower of London

I had chance to spend a few days in London last week and hearing about the poppies I had to go see them for myself.

Each poppy represents a soldier who lost their life in the Great War, which Britain entered 100 years ago this month.

I was very moved at the sight.

You can buy one of these beautiful ceramic poppies for £25 and the proceeds will go towards six service charities.  Please click here Buy a poppy .

The photo’s were taken by myself.

Pretty yellow daffodil

Oh pretty yellow daffodil

You sit alone today

Amongst the bolder tulips

You brighten up my day

Image

The poor little droopy snowdrops

Remind us winters gone

We see the shooting crocuses

Pushing up so strong

Image

The pretty little cherry blossom

Stands guarding the spring flora

Perhaps the other daffodils

Will bloom with you tomorrow
