|The displays of flowers along the way was almost overwhelming. Any one who loves/enjoyes gardening needs to |
come to EPCOT at least once during the annual flower show. What is amazing, is that a lot of the flowers and
shrubs, etc on display are things like peas, corn, maze, vegetables, etc., in addition to what I would call
your rank and file flowers.
The outdoor tavern at the Mexico Pavilion was under wraps (all covered up) while it undergoes a major renovation,
so we got our Margaritas at a make-shift bar they had set up on the side and soon we were listening to the
fantastic Mariachi band that plays out on the promenade in front of the entrance to Mexico. These ten player,
playing guitars, violins (fiddle) and a lone trumpet player, are absolutely fantastic.
Soon, we said our goodbyes to the band and moved on to Norway and was greeted there by some great Norwegian
beers and ugly, ugly (but cute) Trolls -- all decked out in their finest topiary outfits. As the days passed and we
wandered all over EPCOT and World Showcase, we would be greeted by some of the most fantastic and beautiful
topiary displays I have ever seen.
Leaving Norway, we made our way past the China Pavilion area and then rested by the bridge that goes over the
waterway that they use to bring out all the fireworks barges onto to the lake for
the Illumination Show each night.
I sadly watched a young lady stagger along who obviously was enjoying her day at EPCOT way too much. All rested,
we headed towards the Germany Section of World Showcase and were greeted by a great topiary display of
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
