Whimsical and blustery were the two words used to describe this year’s Festival of Flowers, presented by The Providence Hospital Foundation in Mobile, Alabama. In my opinion, the two words I would have used were, “The best!” Even though you can see in the photo above that the larger-than-life chess pieces were toppled over by the wind, it was still magical.
I’ve been to the Festival of Flowers almost every year for the past oh . . . I guess it’s been 8 or 10 years now. I don’t know, how long have they been having it? I think for over 20 years! Every year is beautiful and has unique features, but everything this year was totally, “uprooted” and changed around, which always leads to floral-excitement for all of us giggly-garden-types.
The largest outdoor flower show in the Southeast, the Festival of Flowers is also the best smelling show you can possibly attend, except for maybe the Festival of Cookies. Is there such a thing? I must find out.
Some of the displays were taken straight from the pages of Dr. Seuss. Anyone recognize The Lorax?
