Yesterday the girls and I spent our last day the Walt Disney Worlds, Epcot's 21st Annual Flower and Garden Festival. Today is the official last day, but I am so tired we are not going. It was a fabulous time this year. We meet some incredible people and learned so much.
For those who don't know, in the Spring time, Disney horticulturist come out and show off all that they know and share this information with anyone wanting to learn. There is a festival center that offers two lectures twice a day. One with hands on planting. I home school my kids so each day of the festival, OK we may have missed maybe 7 days all together....shhhh don't tell. We would get to the center at 9 am to get in line to attend the planting class. The center would open at 10 so we would make our way into the center to get in the official line. The event is run my the actual horticulturist from Walt Disney World. On the weekdays, the classes were taught by them. On weekend, there might be a "bigger" name person. Now the 2nd talk for the day was always about plants or animals we need to continue gardening.
So the festival runs from March 5th to May 18. We were there a lot. The great thing about that is people remember seeing the same 5 kids everyday. Oh, my girls BFF's are also homeschooled, so it my 3 girls, their 2 BFFs, their mom and myself. Well there are also special "characters" for the festival. We meet two that the kids fell in love with. We would stop and see them almost every day they were out. Their names were Mother Nature and Rose Petal. So with the festival ending the kids wanted to say Thank You for all the attention. So they asked me to make cards for them and a few other special friends. So this is the card I made for our friend, Mother Nature.
Mother Nature had butterflies all over her dress!
