Flower Power?

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival started a few weeks age here at Walt Disney World, and last weekend I finally got the chance to check it out.

For those of you who have never experienced the Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot before, it is a spring special event filled with a colorful array of flowers, gardens, topiaries, live music and educational events. It runs through March 3, 2010 – May 16, 2010.

Now, I’m no gardening expert nor am I an earth hippie, but I do appreciate amazing gardening art in the form of topiaries… and not just any old topiary…

Boooooooring!

BUT…

DISNEY TOPIARIES!

Yes, that is right, Disney topiaries; the art of growing plants and training them over a frame to create a three dimensional object in the form of a Disney character! Actually, I will be brutally honest here, this sounds like a completely slow, long and boring process, but the final results are somewhat amazing…

After admiring all the fine Disney topiaries at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, it made me gain a whole new appreciation for gardeners and gardening; and for a split second there, it was almost enough to make me want to go outside and do some gardening of my own… but no, far too lazy for that so I shall sit here and enjoy typing this blog… a much easier alternative to showing my appreciation.
