This summer, the Tower Of London will be surrounded by a sea of crimson. This installation, conceived by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, will commemorate each and every British or Colonial fatality from World War 1 by planting 888, 246 red ceramic poppies in a flowing sea around the tower. My mum purchased a poppy for a relative lost in this battle. Absolutely beautiful.

Stourhead - near Mere, Wiltshire, England. The 1,072-hectare estate has gardens designed by Henry Hoare II laid out between 1741 and 1780 in a classical 18th-century design. As a collector of art – one of Henry's pieces was Nicolas Poussin's Aeneas at Delos, which is thought to have inspired the pictorial design of the gardens and passages telling of Aeneas's journey are quoted in the temples surrounding the lake. Many of the temples are inspired by scenes of the Grand Tour of Europe.
