Yes, so beautiful for sure. The cascading of the poppies was a wonderful thought too for them to be placed like that.

They are wonderful. I have just read that all the poppies have now been sold on their web site.

I also read that they are to leave some there due to popular demand.  I hope they do.

Yes that would be so precious if they did that. It really would mean a lot to a lot of people. 

**Quote* Net proceeds from the sale of poppies will be divided equally between Coming Home, Combat Stress, SSAFA, Help for Heroes, The British Legion and Cobseo, The Confederation of Service Charities.


The poem that was the inspiration for the installation of the Poppies.


Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red
The blood swept lands and seas of red,
Where angels dare to tread.
As God cried a tear of pain as the angels fell,
Again and again.
As the tears of mine fell to the ground
To sleep with the flowers of red
As any be dead
My children see and work through fields of my
Own with corn and wheat,
Blessed by love so far from pain of my resting
Fields so far from my love.
It be time to put my hand up and end this pain
Of living hell. to see the people around me
Fall someone angel as the mist falls around
And the rain so thick with black thunder I hear
Over the clouds, to sleep forever and kiss
The flower of my people gone before time
To sleep and cry no more
I put my hand up and see the land of red,
This is my time to go over,
I may not come back
So sleep, kiss the boys for me
