Visiting Armstrong’s Garden Center in Newport Beach

After writing about the incredible Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar, I thought it was only fair to point out that Aaron and I also enjoy a place called Armstrong’s Garden Center in Newport Beach.  The business can trace its roots to 1889 and holds a storied place in the history of the global rose industry (and you know we love our roses!).  A few months ago, we stopped in and spotted a Monarch Butterfly hanging out on some flowers.  We took a video …

Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar Is One of My Favorite Places

In Corona del Mar, California there is a place called Roger’s Gardens.  It is one of the coolest businesses I’ve ever seen and within moments of walking through the entrance, Aaron and I knew it was going to be somewhere we spent a lot of time.  In addition to a covered open-air seating full-service restaurant, it is a multi-acre garden, nursery, and retail experience.  You can eat with friends and family, then design your landscaping, pick out themed Christmas wrapping paper, decorate your home, browse baby gifts, buy water fountains, purchase trees, browse planters and urns, and much more – including designing outdoor furniture!  During a few of our trips, we’ve taken pictures and I thought those of you who love gardening and plants as much as we do would appreciate them.
