Newport Flower Show’s Favorite “Garden Guru” in Greenwich Performance

Lifestyle & Design

“Life is a Garden.  Dig it.”

 

Kent Russell speaking


Kent Russell,
the well-known "Garden Guru"  and a perennial favorite at The Newport Flower Show, raised funds for the Community Centers, Inc. of Greenwich, Connecticut recently at a luncheon at the exclusive Belle Haven Club.  The subject and inspiration?  Flowers, and his astounding  and vast collection of Christian Louboutin shoes.

His very first pair of Christian Louboutin shoes

Entitled "Fashion, Flowers and Footwear", Mr. Russell's presentation also showed his distinct talent as a stand up comedian, keeping the large audience in laughter throughout with tales of shoes and eccentric garden clients, told in slides.We could only ask how soon he would be back in Newport?
