Visiting property over the last few weeks a noticeable casualty has been horticulture. Several flower beds, especially at resorts, have replaced areas usually filled with beautiful bright annuals with shrubs or mulch. Tonight at wilderness lodge was very noticeable with none of usual wildflower gardens being planted. Hanging baskets and potted plants are also non existent, this was noticed on Main Street, around Hollywood studios, and Canada at Epcot. Speaking of Canada, a lot of the gardens have been replaced with shrubs and perennials as opposed to the annuals that are usually planted. Of course this is an easy cost to cut in these times, but hopefully it’s not something that’s permanently forgotten.
