Brussels in Bloom

I love learning about new traditions around the world. Ever heard of Brussels in Bloom? Some history for you...every other year the Grand Palace Square is turned into the Carpet of Flowers. This Belgian square is literally carpeted with close to a million begonias! Isn't this beautiful and awe-inspiring? The big celebratory weekend is coming up, August 13-15, 2010. Another reason to go to Belgium...

I always thing those carpets are fun. Fun to take pictures of too. And to watch people make them is interesting.
