Incredibly beautiful and moving tribute!

The final poppy was was placed at the Tower of London today marking a hundred years since the outbreak of World War I.  There are 888,246 poppies in total, one for each fallen serviceman.

The installation Blood Swept the Land and Seas of Red, was created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, set by stage designer Tom Piper, and thousands of volunteers helped to plant each poppy.

See the Tower of London’s website, where you can purchase poppy or make a dedication to help support service charities in the UK.
