Magic Carpet


This stunning carpet measures 25m x 75m and is made from thousands of fresh Belgian Begonias. Until I stumbled upon this striking installation I did not know that Belgium cultivates 60 million begonia tubers every year, and is recognized as the world’s largest producer.

The Flower Carpet appears in Brussel's main square every 2 years. 2014's dramatic design is inspired by the Turkish Kilm (pic below).

It's times like this that I wished I lived in Europe and could easily hop on a train to experience such fabulousness!  via
