Disney Wordless Wednesday: Topiary from 1983

I have not had the privilege to attend the Flower & Garden Festival.  I've been right before and right after, but never during. 

So, for today's "Flower & Garden" theme Wordless Wednesday, I chose to use a photo of one of the first topiaries at Walt Disney World back in 1983!  I also chose to use words! ;)

Enjoy!

  1. I loved how you used to find them more often all over Disney World property. They did do a great job with them even back then. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I had to scan it, obviously! It's also funny how bad our picture taking skills were in the 80s!

  4. Vintage! lol I've never been to the Flower and Garden festival either, but it would be nice to go some day! (Although if I had to choose between that and Food & Wine, I'd definitely pick Food & Wine...)

  9. It is amazing how the topiaries have changed/evolved over the years. Maybe you and I will have to take a spring break trip to check out the festival!! :-) It really is amazing how great Epcot looks with all the topiaries in place!
