|This is my favourite bit by the entrance to the Tower|
|This was in August|
|Now in September the moat is filling up fast!|
|Path to the mound from where the |
Roll of Honour is read each evening
at sunset and the Last Post is played.
|A view from the moat at the end of my shift.|
|We were allowed to walk around the whole |
installation so this is the bit by Cradle Tower.
|A poppy 100% assembled |
and planted by me!
|My patch. I think I planted about |
25 poppies and spent the rest
of the time assembling rods.
|One of the ceramic poppies ready to plant.|
|The work area ready for the volunteers! Each |
shift has to plant 6000 poppies to be on target
for 11 November.
|A view in August. |
It is amazing how quickly work is progressing.
|The view is really quite stunning.|
|The idea for this sculpture/installation is |
beyond clever imho!
|The poppies are planted at varying heights for effect. This is best seen from ground level.|
|Here you can appreciate the numbers!|
That said they are only half way
|As I left I took this photo from Tower Bridge and the 3 tongues you can see are where I was working. I can't wait to do another shift and I am so grateful to have been part of this wonderful project.|
