I found out about the Flower Carpet display in Beligium via Flirty Fleurs one of my favorite Floral Blogs…

“Every two years in August, an enormous “flower carpet” is set up in the Grand Place for a few days. A million colourful begonias are set up in patterns, and the display covers a full 24 by 77 metres (79 by 253 ft), for area total of 1,800 square metres (19,000 sq ft). The first flower carpet was made in 1971, and due to its popularity, the tradition continued, with the flower carpet attracting a large number of tourists.”

Take a look at the website to see all the past photos…. Or just wait for my future blog posts, featuring these designs every once in a while!  http://www.flowercarpet.be/
