A Tale of Two Trees

Flower Tree

On our travels, we love coming across unusual art installations and this unique flower tree definitely caught our eye whilst we were on a trip to Lyon, Rhône-Alpes last year. We spotted the bright colours and large quirky design from the top of Lyon Ferris Wheel and walked over to take a closer look. The 85-flower tree was created by Korean artist Jeong Hwa Choi and was exhibited on Place Antonin Poncet during Lyon’s Contemporary Art Biennial back in 2003. The people of Lyon loved the piece so much that they bought it in July 2006 and it has been on the original street ever since!

Imagine Sue’s surprise, on a recent trip to Singapore finding another flower tree by the same artist! Let’s hope on our future adventures we come across more of these flower-filled delights!
