Flowers can indeed bloom in the desert, 90 tons of them to be more exact.

This is what it takes to cover this 24m long blossoming replica of an Emirates Airbus A380, that has been installed at Dubai Miracle Garden.

Having this Emirates A380 airliner covered in flowers requires quite a sophisticated clock-work operation, with over 200 people involved. 

The result is, simply, stunning.
