poppies

tried to go and see the poppies outside the tower of london, but it was impossible to get a good view –  half term week with sunshine is a bad mistake, though i do think at the moment the whole area will be mobbed for a while.    it definitely is a breathtaking sight – in fact if you are on the top deck of a bus, you can get a good view from there.   my lovely friends are here from cornwall, so we did a bit of london sightseeing and headed along the river to Tate Britain to see the wonderful Turner exhibition.  the paintings are mainly from the last 6 years of his life – the watercolours are just beautiful and his sea paintings so modern.  if you have seen the film, then you have to see the paintings – it makes you understand more about his paintings.
