2009 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

I attended this year's festival on Sunday, May3rd, 2009. It was 93 degrees, and the sun was a scorcher. I was extremely disappointed by this year's dinky little bonsai exhibit! In previous years there were a number of trees near Japan, and then another bunch of trees (penjing) up near China. This year, there were no trees by China. There were a number of very pretty trees, but this year they didn't even bother putting up the rattan screens behind the trees, so it was often difficult to get a decent shot of those trees placed in front of other green items. All in all, a fairly lousy exhibit and terribly disappointing. The standout tree for me was a Bougainvillea spectabilis, and the runnerup was a Trident maple forest on slab by Mike Rogers.
