_MG_0573 Have you ever been to Roger's Gardens?  If you love flowers and plants, you need to go sometime soon.  And, if you love Christmas, you need to go now!

On Monday my two photographer friends, Terry and Judy, and I headed up north to Newport to visit Roger's Gardens.  I had heard it was an amazing place, and that turned out to be a true statement.  Right now, the grounds are filled with Christmas trees, wreaths, garlands, poinsettias, decorative kale, and all manner of interesting plants - including some pretty cool succulents.  AND, there are several rooms full of Christmas goodies...Santas, gift wrap, ribbons, cards, decorations and just about anything else you can imagine.  It's absolutely huge!  What a great place to wander around, especially with a camera!  Just think what it must look like in the spring.  I think I'll go back then and check it out...you should too.

Here are some images from Monday:

Especially like the red poinsettias with all the water droplets. Good photos!

Hey Chris...don't you sound like the serious photography student!? :-) I used the 18-55mm lens, but didn't use my tripod, so I had LOTS and LOTS of out of focus pics. I should know better, but it was drizzling and just seemed like too much work.

Interesting photos... (and now I can ask questions like this!): What type lens did you use to take them? I like the water droplet look.
