Disney Trip Part 7: Fantastic Flowers

This is the 7th blog about our 2 day trip to Disney World during the last week of Feb. This blog focuses on some of the fantastic flower displays that were there. Epcot was to be the site for the Disney Flower and Garden Festival from March 4 through the 17 and the grounds were so loaded with flowers that we could actually smell pansies. (I didn't know they had a smell!).

 AMAZING TOPIARIES - The first topiary we encountered was of Mickey and Minnie Mouse just inside the gate of Epcot. The figures were about 9 feet high and beautiful. Jeff decided to pose for a picture with Tom near them by grabbing onto his neck.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
