Brussels: Flower Carpet 2012 by Nightcitylights Brussels: Flower Carpet 2012 by Nightcitylights
Belgium, Brussels, Flower Carpet, August 16, 2012

Flower Carpet is a bi-annual event featuring the creation of a detailed carpet design using more 700000 cut begonias. Officially, the first Floral Carpet as its present-day form was created in 1971 on the Grand-Place by the landscape architect E. Stautemans, but, in fact, it was the culmination of a whole series created in various towns in Flanders.

The beauty and diversity of all these Carpets is largely due to their main component, the famous begonia. Chosen above all for its qualities of robustness, resistance to bad weather and strong sunshine the begonia guarantees the long life and freshness of the carpet. It also gives it is rich range of colors from vivid colors to delicate pastel shades, with in between, the parti-colored and white flowers which reflect the light so well.

This photo was taken from the Town Hall balcony.
