Flower Shop On the Rue Royale, Brussels

Fine examples of Belle Epoque architecture stand all over Brussels. The facade of this flower shop is one of my favorites. On sunny days, the reflection of the modern building across the street fills the windows of the facade, forcing viewers to really look in order to discern the curves of the finely crafted wooden and brass door. It's an almost psychedelic experience. I hope that others will still plan to visit Brussels, where they can dine on moules and frites, get to know the friendly, welcoming citizens, discover architectural gems and bring home fine chocolates. I would happily go tomorrow.
