Brussels flower carpet

I went to see the Flower Carpet in the Grand’Place of Brussels yesterday. It’s very impressive: almost the whole of the square is covered by turf and flower petals, arranged in a Horta-inspired pattern.

This plaque inside the town hall also amused me, awarded in recognition of “having achieved significant progress in the development of a long-term action plan towards sustainability”. With that many qualifiers, I wasn’t exactly impressed!
