The Tower of London Remembers

Hello there, and thank you so much for visiting me today.....hope you've had a good week.
So I was lucky enough this Wednesday to have the opportunity to go to London with my Mum and daughter for a bit of shopping and sightseeing, but mostly to view the Poppies at The Tower.
If you've not been yourself, its quite a spectacle to behold, and as we left tower hill station and walked down to the tower and got our first glimpse of this sea of red, it was breath taking. Despite the crowds I found it very peaceful there, but still felt very emotional when you stop and think that each of these ceramic poppies (and there are over 800 thousand of them!) represent a life lost. if you have the opportunity to visit in the next few days, I strongly recommend - I feel very privileged to share this photo's with you all

Don't get chance to get to London very often, so we followed this with a visit to the Science Museum (Meg's choice), and a lovely walk through Hyde Park up to Marble Arch for a mooch around the shops at that end of Oxford St, before our weary little legs took us home.
