'Buxton, England, UK - July 15, 2011: The Well Dressing on Saint Anne\'s Well. Well dressing with a floral design is a tradition in many Derbyshire towns and villages. The design is made of petals and other materials pressing into a clay backing and is erected on the site of the well as part of an annual ceremony. The designs are often of a religious theme. In this case the design commemmorates the 400th anniversary of the production of the King James Bible in 1611.'
