As the past few weekends, have been kinda boring and uneventful. I decided to go through my old albums and see what I can post about. In honor of the One More Disney Day Celebration and the fact that I love all things Disney to the point of obsession. I figure I would talk about last year’s Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.
I want to be very clear… I DO NOT HAVE A GREEN THUMB. Not even close. I love plants & flowers, but they do not last very long around me. My mother can grow ferns from a seedling, I however can kill a cactus.
The festival is very pretty, and I was lucky enough to experience it late April to early May, which I think is prime Florida season. The skies were a beautiful shade of blue.
For all of you lucky people that have a true Green Thumb HGTV & DIY designers offer of presentations on multiple gardening topics. I did not partake in these events. I don’t think HGTV could save my plants.
On the weekends they have Flower Power Concert series, we were able to witness Paul Revere & The Raiders. If you know who that is good for you. I didn’t, apparently I showed my age according to the 60s something couple we met.
Anyway, my absolute favorite part of this festival? The amazing Disney Character Topiaries. Which the majorty of the photo’s from today’s blog will come from. I can’t choose a favorite. The best part, when I went back in October, it was amazing to see the topiaries spread out throughout the parks.
Anyway, enjoy the photos, and if you ever find yourself in Orlando during the festival, it is worth a visit. Especially if gardening is your thing! The photos may take awhile to load, I have a lot of them, so be patient.
Which is your favorite? The Lady and the Tramp makes me smile the most!
