2019 Flower & Garden opens!

Remember my last post was ‘wait for it, wait for  it’………..and this was the main entrance bed.

With a little Disney magic, the flower bed became this.

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.

There are some intricate details in the framework, including the antennas and the curled proboscis (basically a tongue).

The butterflies were resting in a bed full of color.

A stroke of genius was their signs – a giant plant marker, reaching over 4 feet tall.

The festival opened with chilly temps, especially for those of us that have lived in Florida 20+ years and our blood has thinned out.   🙂

At park open, the temperature was in the high 40s.  I never made it to the butterfly house today, but some butterflies were released prior to the park opening.  I’m sure they were trying to find whatever patch of sunlight they could to keep warm.  By this weekend, they will be loving their home when once again our temps soar into the 70s and 80s.  More festivals highlights will be coming soon!

One item to note which you may find interesting (or not) this is only the second time since the Festival started that a Disney character has not been featured in the main entrance flower bed.
