We recently visited Disney World and were able to be there during the annual Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot. The gardens are always wonderful but they are exceptionally wonderful during the garden festival. One unnamed member of my family finds it hard to believe that it is a coincidence that the garden festival has been going on the last five times we have visited. To quote that person, “Coincidence my eye!” Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed viewing the gardens.
A giant topiary garden greets you at the entry.
Mickey’s robe was covered in begonias and the base was covered with allysum.
The stars were covered with dusty miller.
The base was a beautiful mixture of annuals.
This ostrich was so cute!
I love the grass accents!
This peacock was very interesting too.
Let’s get a closer look.
Here’s a great rendition of Goofy.
The prince and princess above were made of succulents.
Notice the use of grasses again on Captain Hook’s hat.
The three tiered fountain above was converted to a planter for succulents. Great use of a fountain when the pump breaks.
Also, on a more practical note for homeowners, there were wonderful containers everywhere.
I hope you’ve been inspired. I have and now I have a lot to do. I have weeds to pull and roses to spray. Have a great week.
