I’ve not posted to this blog as much as I would like, but I just got back from a long weekend in Orlando, and the weekend before that was a long, girls’ weekend in Kentucky, so I’m still playing catchup. I want to share some vacation pictures, but don’t worry, they’re not the boring kind that go on and on. These vacation pictures are from Epcot’s Festival of Flowers.
If you go, you can watch a short movie with some time-lapse pictures showing how they install the elaborate front entry in one night while the park is closed. It was pretty interesting. That last picture and the next one were both taken at the entry garden.
There were a lot of bold color combinations.
I'm not sure how I feel about this next picture. I put potted plants on old pallets so that the darn armadillo doesn't knock them over when he's rutting around out there, and I want to replace them with something else. Pallets eventually rot, and then you have to find all the nails. And don't they treat the wood they make pallets from?
If you have limited sun and want to grow vegetables, you might have to follow the sun with a moveable garden.
I've never seen a tree like that before. Amazing. Someone told me it's Tabebula ochracea.
The gardens were full of huge topiaries. Lady and The Tramp were my favorite, and my husband, Dale and I posed in front of them for a picture.
I don't know why Lady didn't like it.
Epcot is always fun, but being there during the Flower and Garden Festival was an unexpected bonus. If you want to go, the festival runs until May 18th.
