In May I attended the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. It was my first time in several years and it was great to be back!

The topiaries are always amazing and fun showing timeless Disney characters from book and film.

The work done by the Disney cast members and horticulture team is creative and detailed.

I waited several minutes to get a photo of Bambi and friends as there were throngs of folks waiting to get their photo taken with this arrangement.

You don’t want to forget to look up! Peter Pan could be found atop one of the buildings near the Rose and Crown Pub. I happened to notice him while waiting for a beer with my husband.

I loved the Monster’s Inc area so much I wanted to bring them home to my yard. I wonder if I could create topiaries that would be ready for Halloween some day? 🙂

I hope that I will be able to attend this fun and informative festival sooner, rather than later. There was great food and lots of fun. Of course Disney is expensive, so it may be a couple of years. If you have never been, I highly recommend going.

I’d be interested to know if any of you have tried your hand with creative topiary, particularly Disney-themed?

 

Stay cool out there and KEEP ON GROWIN’,
