It's been a "Daffinitive" week in Newport, as the Fifth Annual Daffodillion, reaching for a goal of one million daffodils in the city by the sea (almost there) , held a plethora of events, from tours and lectures to its signature party, the Spring Fling at The Chanler, honoring Mother Nature and bringing out fabulous beflowered hats.


Coming up: Artist Ron Burkhardt, who created three original genres: Notism, LetterScape and Earth Art, is fêted at an opening reception at Palm Beach's Brazilian Court.  hosted by Paul Fisher, of Paul Fisher Gallery.  His "Letterscapes" had guests playing at interpreting his modern art works' messages.
