The world is full of flowers

When you think about horticulture and gardening in Walt Disney World, often the mind drifts to vintage topiaries scattered all about property, the Mickey planter, or the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. With an eye specifically towards Epcot, everyone immediately thinks of the grand displays and gorgeous designs that fill the bed in front of Spaceship Earth year round. Yet, directly behind Spaceship Earth, is another plot that receives just as much attention to detail, but is often passed by on the way to bigger and better attractions, except of course when it is filled with topiaries for the Flower and Garden Festival. Here’s a quick tour through the bed’s ever-changing looks over the past couple of years. How many of these designs did you see firsthand?

Jessica, no problem! I'm just happy that I am able to share them with everyone.

Ben, That area always has some great designs. Although, if pressed, my favorite is the EPCOT Center logo.
