Over 800,000 ceramic flowers creep up building in England

Ivy is known as a climbing plant, but never have poppies crept up the wall of a building – until now. A building in Derby, England, has become the site of an artistic installation with a political message.
"Weeping Window" is an artwork using 888,246 ceramic poppies placed on a red brick building as part of a UK-wide tour organized by 14-18 NOW, a cultural program to mark the centenary of the First World War.
The installation is the brainchild of artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper and honors every death in the British and Colonial forces during the war. They chose the Silk Mill in Derby as it contributed to the British war effort through grinding corn and making medical supplies.
