Every two years, since 1971, the Grand Place of Brussels is transformed by thousands of locally-grown begonias.

The flowers are intricately arranged into the famous Tapis de Fleurs (or "carpet of flowers").

This week, more than 120 volunteers painstakingly laid 600,000 flowers across the Belgian capital's square. The theme of the 2012 carpet was a tribute to African tapestry weavers.
