Brussels in Bloom
Given that Valentine's Day was yesterday and flowers are often used as a gesture of love, I wanted to post these pics of Brussels in Bloom. Every two years, Grand-Place in Brussels, Belgium is transformed with over one million begonia blossoms. The festival first began in 1971 as way of promoting begonias. This year the design is based on a medieval carpet, and for each square metre 300 flowers are used. Amazing.
