it's pretty impressive.
to mark 100 years since the start of world war 1, an artist put a handcrafted poppy in one of the windows of the castle. Over time, he's added to it with the idea that each poppy represents a British person who died in the war. The piece of art is now finished with (i think this is right) 880 000 poppies. The amount of space occupied by them around the castle is the same as 16 football pitches and it looks really impressive. A sort of sea of red surrounding the castle.
there's a bit of controversy about it because it's supposed to come down on 11/11 (the date when world war ended) but some politicians have asked it to stay up so that the 1000s of people flocking to see it will get a chance.
cool piece of art.
really thought provoking.
