On my visit to London this year, I went to the Tower of London to look at the art project installed to commemorate the British soldiers who died in WWI.

It is quite fascinating as you can see if you go to the link below or google Tower of London.

November: In the meantime some weeks have past and the sight around the Tower has changed dramatically.

Already voices have been raised that suggest the poppies stay. However, their transcience (meaning: limited existence) is part of the project. After November 12 the single poppies will be sent to those who purchased them and thereby supported the project.
