SC Festival of Flowers Topiaries

Every year during the month of June, there is a festive atmosphere in my town. This is the 41st year of the SC Festival Of Flowers. There are various activities throughout the month from a triathlon, golf tournament, theater production, craft show, art and photography show and, of course, tours of Park Seed. This weekend is the big weekend. I always look forward to this part of the festival. The weather is suppose to be perfect.

This year in the uptown area, topiaries have been placed in various spots. My husband and I walked through town a couple of days ago and were impressed with the creativity. Many of the schools adopted these topiaries. Amazing work. My photography doesn't do them justice, but I thought you might enjoy seeing them. These are just a sampling of what is on display.

I am looking forward to the garden tours on Saturday. I'll walk away wishing I had a larger yard than my little postage stamp sized yard. But then again, more yard means more work.

I wish I would have know about that. I may have made the trip to see it. I don't live too far from you. Near Charlotte.
