2012 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival Line-Up
It’s that time of year again. Time for the thoughts of fresh flowers blooming and what am I going to do to the garden/yard this year start to creep into our minds. So what a great time for the Annual Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. The festival runs from March 7th until May 20th this year.
I love looking at all the topiaries that are out for the festival. It is absolutely incredible the amount of detail and color that goes into each one. The line-up of HGTV celebrities and bands that make the festival great is also impressive this year.
