I love this thread! Whenever I go to Disneyland I like to choose a theme to photograph. We usually go in December so have lots of holiday pics. We are going in mid-May so I was thinking of taking lots of flower photos. It is like the OP read my mind!

They look a little more like oranges in your photo. When we saw that tree in October, the fruit was not as fully developed yet, so that's why they looked too big to be lemons but too small to be oranges. They may have grown a bit by the time you saw the tree. And the lemon tree - I am trying to recall exactly where that was, but I think it was tucked away by a line somewhere.

I can't deal with that Canon manual. Actually, it came with 3 or 4 books - Im sure yours did too. It's too technical and too much to read for a P&S!!

Did I hear something about holiday pictures? We have a whole "Disney at Christmas" planning super thread, chock full of info and tips and photos! We love photos!

When you have time, we would love for you to share some of your DLR holiday pictures in that thread:

Those are all great photos! I've always loved looking at all the flowers and landscaping at DL. Here's a picture of something that caught my eye on a rosebush in the Esplanade!

Yes that is what they are called. They do really well in Southern California. We have them up here too but not as many. They are beautiful when in bloom.

Oh nice shots!!!! I love the flowers at DLR, i love looking at them.
We had foxglove in the front yard, away from the dogs, loved it but it didn't last.
I wish I had some photos on the laptop but I don't think I do....I'll check and if I do I will post.

Aside from answering the thousands of questions the guests have about flowers in DL, the book serves as a guide if someone were to have a bad reaction to one of the plants.

DL has the best customer service and experience of any theme park I have ever been to. I will gladly pay extra for the level of service and sense of style that Walt instilled in this park.

I love all of the flowers at Disneyland. And I love that they switch them out often. I have some older pictures but they are just pictures from my point and shoot camera. Everyone elses photos make mine look really crappy.

My favorites are the mums they plant in the fall.

Oooooooohhhh! Purty!! Love those! Actually, any one of those flowers would be pretty on its own, but I love love love all the different colors thrown in together!!

Disney is so detailed, and they are very calculated with their horticulture! It goes beyond simply changing the colors of flowers for different seasons or holidays. In some areas, the flowers are all one type and all one color, because it may fit the area or theme of that area better. In some cases, they may want the main surroundings & facades to grab your attention, and the flowers are only a complement to them, so the flowers take a back seat. And in other spots, like this spot in DCA in your pics above, I almost get the feeling that they are taking an otherwise kind of bland, colorless patch of land in DCA and putting something really vibrant and alive in there - and the flowers almost become the main player, as they bring that whole area to life and really draw your attention to them!

I guess it makes perfect sense - World of Color is going to be the new dominating force in DCA for a little while, so what else could they possibly put in there but an array of gorgeous, colorful flowers to bring the idea of color to that spot? See? They are very calculated and well-thought out!!

Go ahead and post them! I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to see them. I use a point and shoot camera as well.

You don't know how much I LOVE this thread..... The horticulture is one of the main reasons why I love going.

Since, I will be there next Friday, June 4th, I must contribute to this fabulous thread with a picture or two of something that catches my eye. I pledge to be on the lookout! Thanks!
