This year's Flower and Garden festival at Epcot is extraordinary. I've only seen it May, at the end of the festival, and while it was beautiful, I had no idea how incredible it is at its peak.

Exhibits ranged from cute and clever for kids to innovative and fun for grown ups. I loved the bright colors of this outdoor living exhibit.
