ESL English Lesson: The Tower of London Poppies
David Robinson

A majestic sea of red poppies now surrounds the Tower of London in London. The display called ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ is in the Tower of London moat. It marks the First World War centenary.

Thousands and thousands of people have visited the display, by artist Paul Cummins, with huge queues forming; such has been the popularity of it. All four sides of the dry moat surrounding the fortress are now blanketed in a sea of scarlet red.

When the sea of poppies is completed there will be a total of 888,246 flowers. Each represents a death of a British and Colonial soldier. The poppies have been individually planted by an army of 8,000 volunteers.
