No Morley this week, so I met a friend and we went to see the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London, and Sculpture in the City. We both found the poppy sea very moving, despite the crowds due to half term. I hadn't appreciated that some of the poppies are laid flat on the earth, rather than being on stems. This meant that several of them had been placed on ledges and on steps within the moat. Seeing the autumn leaves among the poppies added to the poignancy.
