Creating a Community of Caring
This years theme at the Newport Flower Show was "Vintage Picnic". Such an outstanding job our Garden Center did with their exhibit! A beautiful antique oriental rug, potted palms, ferns, vintage picnic baskets, Champagne bucket and beautiful china. Not to mention all the lovely flowers from our Garden Center!
