April Showers Bring May Flowers- Seeds from The Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

on May 10, 2013

As the Flower & Garden Festival comes to its final two weeks, I decide it was time to bring  our little gift from Epcot to life.

The Flower & Garden festival’s 20th Anniversary was this year and it started March 6th and its final day is May 19th. The Festival was filled with food, music, activities and of course FLOWERS!!

And that my friends is exactly what we are bringing to life today!

When we visited the OZ garden during our visit, we played a few carnival games and were given these as our prize!

OZ/Flower and Garden Festival seed packets

They are yellow marigolds to create our own Yellow Brick road (as it says on the package)

This is the back of the seed packet, has the directions and the infamous Minnie Mouse as a Topiary to go with the theme from the following year of Mickey as one.

I planted them Monday night and it said it would take 5-8 days for them to sprout, I sat them in the window sill and 4 days later, we have these!

Our first little bit of Spring in our house!  They sure grew fast, unlike my Venus flytraps, who are almost 5 months old and barely the size of a fingernail!

So there you have it, we have brought another piece of Disney to life!

Hope you enjoyed this post, see you again soon!
