There's a beautiful garden center named Roger's Gardens that I love to visit during certain times of the year. It's especially gorgeous during the Christmas season when every inch of the grounds and stores are covered with decorated trees, white twinkle lights, and more ornaments than the imagination can dream up. This year one of the rooms was completely decorated in white.
I loved these little Paper Mache Angels with their sweet faces and whimsical pale green skirts.
Ssh! I don't think they know their skirts are inside-out so we wouldn't want them to be embarrassed by bringing it to their attention...now would we?
How's this for a birthday crown? It was made mostly of paper and cost a small fortune, but how lucky is the lady who gets to wear this on her head?
This was one of my favorite displays...Mica Christmas trees, silver stars, white candles, and giant glass jars filled with silver orbs. Everything was so beautiful and festive just in time for Christmas.
There were rooms decorated in red with more traditional ornaments and one section done entirely in Gingerbread...makes me wonder why I didn't get a picture of that since Gingerbread is my favorite Christmas treat! But the Piece De La Resistance was a big chair made of red roses.
I wandered around the outer gardens breathing in the scents of the pine trees until it became dusk...time to go back home to my cozy little cottage.
If you're in the Newport Beach area you should take the time to enjoy the magic of the gardens during the Christmas season. And for those of you who can't I've included a link...enjoy!
