During my trip to Quito, Ecuador last year, I had a chance to visit farms, attend an international floral expo and meet some great floral people. During one of our tours of the city, we stopped at an impressive city square where designers had decorated over 10 bicycles with colorful roses, spray roses, spider mums and accent elements such as gypsophilia, hypericum, eryngium and solidaster. Each one was different and beautiful. The entire square was guarded by police and government security to ensure that these art pieces were unharmed for the days they were on display. The square was surrounded by restaurants, cafes and shops. One of our floral friends was even interviewed by the local media. I personally could not stop taking pictures of these arrangements on two wheels. Here are some of my favorite ones.
