On your average day, the Grand Place in Brussels -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- is fascinating in its own way. But once every two years, for about four days, the stony square gets all dressed up. With the help of the people of Belgium, it covers itself in 600,000 flowers-the famous 'Brussels Flower Carpet.' This year's was constructed over the course of eight hours by hundreds of volunteers, who, following a color plan laid out on the ground, hand-placed each begonia, dahlia, and bark bit. People in Brussels can visit the carpet at the Grand-Place through Monday. Everyone else can enjoy internet photos.
