Shrub and Flower Sculptures

A couple of weeks ago hubby and I went to Greenwood , SC for the Festival of Flowers. I have wanted to go for the last three years but couldn't seem to get there.
Even with the hustle and bustle of expecting company we squeezed it in.
I had heard it was amazing and I wasn't disappointed.
The first pic is of the elephant with a news reporter getting ready to film from that site.
Hubby said something funny and she was cracking up. This is her baby and if you look close enough you can see water squirting from the trunk.

The horse was so pretty!

I'm standing next to a sheep, in case you couldn't tell...lol

Check out this life size giraffe and baby. It is truly amazing to see these made from shrubs, flowers and grasses!

King Kong!

This car was adorable! Check out the wheels, bumpers, and headlights.

They all have drip lines running into them to keep them fresh for the month of June.

Hubby by the butterfly.

The next two were not in the town of Greenwood but look at what some talented person did!

We just saw the new Cars 2 movie with all the grands this week, so I thought I'd add these cuties!
If you ever get a chance to see a show like this you won't be sorry!   Thanks for stopping!

I'm joining Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!

It never ceases to amaze me how talented some folks can be - like sand castle artists and float makers and, now, flower sculptors!! Just love it!!

Have been catching up on blogs - and well you were on hiatus as well:) Glad you are posting again! Hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer!!

I'm always fascinated by the shapes they can make shrubbery into. Gardeners can certainly be artists in their own right. They are beautiful!

Hi Girl,
Oh I love this post with the gorgeous sculptures. The car and truck are really something. But I love the horse and elephant too. Great pics and so glad you are having a wonderful summer with outings and family visits.

Very HOT HOT here and everyday for the last 13 it has been over 100 degrees. 18 total days so far of 100 plus. Hottest June/July weather recorded since 1980 here in North Texas. We need some rain.

I sure missed you.
XO Celestina Marie
