“Sighted between the raindrops” will surely be the catchphrase when I think back on Newport’s spring of 2019. Just for those rainy reasons, I’ve become more and more appreciative each year of hardy daffodils (and even forsythia) that persevere through anything.
Enjoy these spots of spring that bring such pleasure to our Newport community (I tried mightily to capture these images on a sunny-ish day).
Daffodils, as far as the eye can see.
Thousands and thousands (and thousands) of daffodils are to be seen surrounding this handsome historic home.
Is there any Newporter who doesn’t anticipate the blooming of this grand Star Magnolia at the Art Museum, such a compliment to the elegant Cushing Gallery.
Early magnolia blooms dress up a happy garden cottage nestled into the back corner of Chateau-sur-Mer.
You’ll perhaps remember one dreamy spot from last year…Mintwater Cottage. The property has since been sold (lucky new owners!) and it is with a lump in my throat that I bid adieu to our dear friends, Allison and Steve Walk, headed off to another idyllic spot, the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Newport’s exceptional architecture is always a welcome backdrop for a daffodil show.
And finally, my friend and fellow entrepreneur, Camilla Bradley,dashing through the daffodils.
Now off to a week in merry olde England — Bath and the Cotswolds (and Prince Charles’ garden). Stay tuned for upcoming posts from over the pond.
