Just occasionally we Brits do something really well!
We went there on a Friday around 11.00 am and it was solid with people from all over the UK and the World. It has been like that for weeks and weeks.
Here is an artistic touch showing the poppies appearing to pour out of the castle. Just like blood pouring out of some poor soul's body.
The crowds were quiet and reverent, quietly shuffling along all a bit overwhelmed aware that each poppy represented one of the 888,246 who died protecting our freedom.
We came away quiet, reflective and thankful. It made me proud to be British.
