I’m going to take advantage of this golden moment when I can actually get on the DIS (which has been infrequent lately), and knock out a bunch of photos in one post, because I may not be able to get back on.

By the way, I had no idea bougainvilleas were such a big hit! There are a lot of them on my street and on the nearby streets in my neighborhood – sometimes there are big bougainvillea bushes framing people’s front doors and they start to get unruly after a while, hanging down and getting in the way of the entry. They end up getting trimmed, which cuts down on a lot of the color impact.

Anyway, these photos are all from various parts of Disneyland Resort, including the parks, the Grand Californian and even Downtown Disney.

At this moment I'm cursing Utah's snowy winters. I so wish we could grow some of these. We finally purchased our own home last year and I'm still trying to figure out what to plant. I am in love with Birds of Paradise..my friend grew up in Orange CO and said they're pretty much 'weeds' out there LOL Closest I've come here is Day Lilies..briefly they look almost birds of paradiseish!

I need someone who works for Disney's gardening department to come plant for me :P

I am waiting for my little bit of Disney to pop up out of the ground.
About 5 years ago I picked some of the dead heads off a few marigolds at WDW. I let them dry out and planted the seeds the following year. Now every year since then I pick the deadheads and put them in a paper bag in the garage over the winter and plant them in the spring.
Evey time I go out to my front walk I see a little bit of Disneyworld in my garden
Marigolds are about the only flowers that will go to seed from the dried flowers, otherwise I would be picking more dead flowers.lol

I love seeing these pics, they make me happy! Especially since its ugly and rainy outside right now. I'm getting ready to plant in my front yard and I was going to plant iceberg roses along a small fence line and now I want to see if I can order the Disneyland roses instead!!! Too late for bulbs from Jackson and Perkins, but maybe my local nursery can order them in gallon pots?

"Cultivating the Magic" Guided Tour

This summer DL is going to have a new guided tour about horticulture.

From MP's Weekly Update (April 23 - 29):
http://www.mouseplanet.com/9952/Disn..._Resort_Update

Quote:
"…A new guided tour called Cultivating the Magic debuts at Disneyland this summer, and cast
members begin testing the two-hour tour next weekend. The tour is said to include rides on
both the Jungle Cruise and Storybook Land Canal Boats, and focuses on the use of horticulture
to convey the theme and story of each land. We don't yet have any information on when
public tours begin, or how much they might cost."

It’s so out of the ordinary for me to be posting photos – especially flower photos – from any month that’s not part of the Halloween Time or Holiday seasons. To be honest, I have not been to Disneyland outside of those two seasons since probably 1995!! I’m an Autumn and Winter-sort of person, all the way!

But…I forced myself to go to DLR on June 9th to be part of the AP preview for Cars Land and Buena Vista Street! With that came some flower pictures!

The vibrant colors of the flowers during this time of year are so amazing! I’m so used to seeing the Floral Mickey in Fall or holiday tones – it was so weird for me to see it in pinkish-purple shades!

In fact, even though my heart belongs to the DLR holiday season and then to Halloween Time as a close second, I sort of wish that I went more often during the other months of the year, simply because the flowers are so pretty! I prefer the Fall and Winter seasons more, but I think the flowers are prettier in Spring and Summer!



From Cars Land (June 9, 2012):




























(Looks like these still have some blooming to do!)







From Buena Vista Street (June 9, 2012):
