Saw this this morning and whilst the Tower poppy field is well covered in every kind of media, these image are well worth another look.

I'm really hoping to get down to London to see these.
May the Force be with you.

Aren't you too late? I thought they were going to be removed after today, even though they will leave some for a bit longer.
