Poppies Pour Like Blood from the Tower of London - This summer, the Tower Of London will be surrounded by a sea of crimson.

With almost all of the 888,246 poppies now in place, the Queen was rendered almost invisible as she walked through the sea of ceramic crimson blooms during a tour of the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation at the Tower of London. After Armistice Day on the 11th November, the poppies will be sold to raise funds for Help for Heroes and other military charities. 16th October 2014
