While New Yorkers are fast asleep in their beds, something exciting is happening on the streets outside under the cover of darkness…

Setting out in the early hours with a van filled with thousands and thousands of flowers, a team of guerrilla florists work quickly to create these giant psychedelic displays of colour before sunrise.

Lewis Miller never broadcasts where his next ‘Flower Flash’ will appear; it will just pop up randomly around New York City, with the hashtag ‘LMD x NYC’ sprayed next to each installation.

As soon as one of his impressive creations is spotted, it’s instantly rewarded on Instagram – Lewis has since racked up a huge following of over 100,000!

Bins aren’t his only target, ‘flower flashes’ can pop anywhere, such as on the Alice in Wonderland Statue in Central Park…

The John Lennon Imagine memorial, also in Central Park…

Even on bus stop canopies!

Where next, I wonder? Keep up with Lewis Miller’s guerrilla floristry antics on Instagram here.
