Seas of Red

I'm interrupting the flow of Harry Potter pages for this week's challenge at UKScrappers. It was set by the Scrappycats who asked us to use a sketch, a colour in the title and a sprinkling of something.

I was going to skip this one as neither the sketch nor the colour requirement inspired me, but a visit to London on Monday gave me the perfect photos for this challenge.

"Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red" is an art installation at the Tower of London to mark one hundred years since the outbreak of the First World War. The moat is being filled with 888,246 ceramic poppies, one for each British or Colonial soldier who was killed. We first visited in August when just a small proportion of the flowers had been 'planted' and we returned this week, joining phenomenal crowds on the walkways above the moat.
