EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival
This past weekend my wife and I visited the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival; this year the theme was “The Great Outdoors”
This was our fourth visit to this annual event and in my opinion the best so far, the festival had more displays with beautiful topiaries, more flowers and many activities.
The main attractions are the topiaries of Disney characters all strategically located around the park.
My favorite display is the butterfly garden and Pixie Hollow fairy garden.
In World Showcase each country show off their typical gardens.
The bromeliad dragon from China is always impressive.
Container gardens from Italy
This year the theme at the American pavilion was “Community gardens”
Bonsai from Japan
The theme in France was fragrance gardens
In England was the “English Tea Garden”
I attended a lecture on growing fruit trees (very interesting, and the fact that it was held indoor in an AC pavilion was even nicer)
The landscaping at EPCOT center is spectacular year around but this time of the year they go all out.
Make a note next year’s festival will be from March 2 to May 15, 2011
