The 30th annual Festival of Flowers, will proudly showcase gardens of Japanese influence by Lead Designer, Dale Speetjens, of Shipshape Urban Farms. You will feel led into a new space as you enter the Torii gates and glimpse Mount Fuji in a mural created by The Nest of Mobile. Continue to stroll through a tranquil bamboo forest to six locally landscaped gardens that demonstrate the historical evolution of Japanese gardening, beginning with the Heian period, through its continuous impact on modern landscape design with each space complementing the other.  A constructed tea house will float on a peaceful pond enhanced by raised flowers and plants.  Find balance, as you gaze at a center zen garden that represents unspoiled nature viewed differently from many focal points throughout the show amid floral geisha and warrior masks sculpted by our area’s most talented designers.
