Carpet of Flowers

29 Aug

Just over a week ago marked the last visiting day to see Brussels’ Flower Carpet. Thousands of begonias are strategically placed to form intricate patterns and designs on the Grand-Place. Each year showcases a different theme that takes a year to plan so it’s astounding that the gardeners only need 4 hours to create the 77 m x 24 m carpet. Here’s what 750,000 flowers look like!

You can bet that I’ve marked the dates for next year’s Flower Carpet. With a bit of luck, I’ll post personal shots of the spectacular display next year. Here are some displays from past years.

    Very beautiful, people do similar thing in India with flowers and colours during festive season. They call this art form “Rangoli”.
