Some new friends invited me to accompany them on a visit to Walt Disney World’s Epcot Center yesterday. I had not been to Epcot in at least 16 years, so the offer of a no-cost employee pass and a day enjoying good company was welcome. The 2014 Flower & Garden Festival is currently underway and much to my surprise, the flowers with real wow-factor were scarce. Based on past experience, I had much higher expectations from the Disney landscape designers. Thankfully, the fun surpassed the flowers, so I’m good — though I had hoped for a handful of striking flower photos.
In my opinion, this bromeliad was queen of the show. If my memory isn’t failing me, it’s a Vriesea ‘Tiffany’. I’d have called it ‘Flaming Queen’.
