Blood swept lands…….another perspective

I recently read a blog post by Sarah Shumate who volunteered to spend a day planting poppies at the Tower of London memorial to the British and colonial servicemen lost in WWI.

It’s an interesting account with some stunning photographs of the installation – well worth reading. Click on the link below.

  1. The poppies are stunning, absolutely breathtaking and the pictures unbelievable. ❤ ❤ ❤

    I can't figure out how to leave a comment on the original post.


  2. Thank you for linking to my post! And apologies to your reader who was unable to comment over on my blog. Sometimes my commenting system takes a little while to load. Sorry about that!


  3. Poppies: beautiful blog! But the poppies are now sold out, and I live in Perth, too far away to go and see the Tower installation.

    Camino blog: full of interest for another Camino addict. I was taken back to my various Caminos, which I am doing in sections. One suggestion: it would be nice to know the actual name of the albergue, as some towns have many. We can then seek out your recommended ones. (Maybe too late now though).

    Photos: how do you achieve the lovely collages? (Especially the sloping sides?). Maybe it’s a feature of WordPress, which seems a bit different from Blogger which I use:



I would love some feedback - tell me what you think.....
