Carpet Bedding

UK seaside towns and civic gardens are home to a phenomena known as Carpet Bedding. This is when you take annual summer flowers and group them densely in a flower bed to create a pattern or picture.

While some US towns have carpet bedding, it doesn’t seem to be as prevalent as it is in Europe. Here’s a good piece of carpet bedding on the side of the River Rhein, spotted during our transit flight from Friedrichshafen to Bonn.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
