There is a special area to the rear of the America Pavilion. It’s an Alphabet Garden, each letter of the alphabet is represented by a few plants – the goal is to guess the names of the plants. Nora correctly guessed 23 out of 26!

The main characters from Cars 2 are featured in Japan. These topiaries were the centerpieces at the World Showplace last year, we remember that it took a while to get them out and in place after 2011 Flower and Garden Festival began.
