Disney Magic

Our vacation coincided with the annual International Flower Show at Epcot.  Today I’ll be sharing a lot of photos with you, because it was so lovely.

On Mother’s Day each lady was given a carnation as she entered the park.  Here I am beside the topiaries of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

DH has fondly been “Doc” ever since he completed his PhD.  Here’s Doc with the others. 

A sentimental favorite for us was Lady and the Tramp, in the Italy pavilion.  In fact, as we rode around on the Segway tour, we kept finding more favorites and saying “Oh, we have to come back and get a picture of that one”. 

Captain Hook and the crocodile have these two little boys enthralled at the green playground exhibit.

Bambi, Flower, and Thumper were in a meadow at the Canada pavillion.

DH said “It makes you think of the Rose Parade with its use of plant material, doesn’t it?”  Disney not only achieved beautiful topiaries, but surrounded them with appropriate flowers. There were enough topiary scenes to equal a Rose Parade.  I’ve just chosen a few favorites to share today.

Just when you thought you had seen the best part, they wowed you with floating gardens and amazing banks of color.

There were many exhibits, such as that green playground, complete with master gardeners to advise you.  Some people actually planned their vacation to be able to take advantage of the flower show; we were but lucky by-standers.
