This year it’s not just the autumn colours making a breathtaking appearance at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. As well as the rich golden hues of this ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ there are also the vibrant reds of thousands of ceramic poppies.
For on display, cascading from the stone parapet of a bridge into the waters of the lake below is a wave of poppies; some of the iconic commemorative ceramic poppies from last year’s exhibition held at the Tower of London. They grabbed the public’s spirit and attention then and they do so again now, this time in the glorious surroundings of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
I hope you can manage a visit.
