Huge Carpet of Flowers in Brussels!


The Carpet of Flowers in the Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium is made from over 650,000 begonia flowers. Belgium is one of the world's largest begonia bulb exporters. This event happens every two years. The next edition will be August 2016. It takes a hundred experienced gardeners to put this carpet together in four hours! Looks like a big flower quilt to me.
