Brussels in Bloom







Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium has once again been transformed into a shockingly beautiful flower carpet display and the facts behind how this installation was created are unbelievable. Every two years a new design is thought up and constructed in the city center. Over a million blooms were used to construct this years vibrant design. Mostly begonias and dahlias are packed in one by one using 300 to every square metre. The design is based on the patterns of brightly colored African textiles and stretches 79x253ft giving an area of 19,000 sq ft. Perhaps the most astonishing fact to this is all is that this is constructed in just four hours!
