Gardening enthusiasts

The 2009 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is not quite here yet, but the groundwork is already being laid and raised. Reader Marilyn Johnson, of Marilyn’s Meanderings, gave us this great update in a comment the other day:
“We were over at EPCOT (yes I know it's Epcot but I still believe in Walt's dream)yesterday (we live 1-1/2 hours from WDW and have annual passes) and preparations for the Flower and Garden show are well underway. If there were some way to put pics on my comment I would do so!! There are new topiaries this year which are just incredible. The plantings around the center lagoons are done and are beautiful! Minnie's butterfly house is up and the butterfly topiary is installed (and again beautiful). The children's play area in the center by the rose gardens is about 1/4 done. All of this to say you won't be disappointed!! We'll probably not get over again until March 30 or 31. But between then and the end of the show we will be over 4 or 5 times. We find it fun to see the progression of the flowers at the beginning of the show (still tight and budding) to the end of the show in May (flowers in full blossom or almost past peak). ENJOY!!”

Additionally, Marilyn also let me know that she had posted a few pictures over at her own site, by all means, stop on by and check out the prep work being done in Epcot right now.

That festival is one that I have heard of. I hope to one day be there and see it for myself. :)
