A Strolled Through The Gardens After Lunch At Cucina Enoteca At Newport
We dined at Cucina Enoteca with Renee from Catal and decided to drop by Rogers to see what was happening! It was a beautiful day and the flowers were just spectacular. We came back with lettuce and some other goodies.
Our version of "The Hot Rod Lincoln"... OK, It's a Minivan!
The flowers were just magnificent
They put succulents into odd pieces of driftwood... Quite stunning

Did You Know? - Fuchsia is a genus of flowering plants that consists mostly of shrubs or small trees. The first, Fuchsia triphylla, was discovered on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola (present day Dominican Republic and Haiti) about 1696–1697 by the French Minim monk and botanist, Charles Plumier during his third expedition to the Greater Antilles. He named the new genus after the renowned German botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501–1566).

Purple and green just made the plant jump out at you...

When you have pretty rocks, what should you do with them?
Did You Know? - Rose quartz is a type of quartz which exhibits a pale pink to rose red hue. The color is usually considered as due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese, in the massive material. Some rose quartz contains microscopic rutile needles which produces an asterism in transmitted light. Recent X-ray diffraction studies suggest that the color is due to thin microscopic fibers of possibly dumortierite within the massive quartz.
Additionally, there is a rare type of pink quartz (also frequently called crystalline rose quartz) with color that is thought to be caused by trace amounts of phosphate or aluminium. The color in crystals is apparently photosensitive and subject to fading.
