Floralia Brussels 2017

In the village of Groot-Bijgaarden a few minutes from where I live, the owners of the castle Groot-Bijgaarden organize every year from early April to early may the event Floralia. In the private owned park about 1 million bulbs are planted. In spring they all start to bloom about the same time. At least 500 different species are in bloom of which 400 different tulips. It's a feast of color. I bought an entrance pass for the entire period so I can visit everyday if I wanted to. In the weekends it's crowded with people since extras are organised(performers) This event attracts people from all around the world but especially from Japan and China. I heard so many languages. This abundance of so many species in one place is unique in the world. I hope you enjoy the images.

I like to thank all the performers for posing so willingly to me.
