Dear Gardening Friends,

Attached are two invitations. The first is a printable pdf of my upcoming Monarch lecture and exhibit, with all new photos, which will be held in the Matz Gallery at the Sawyer Free Library in Gloucester during the month of September. Look for my article about the Monarchs in the upcoming fall issue of Cape Ann Magazine (available August 28th).
The second invitation is for a concert our daughter Olivia has organized to benefit the Annisquam Village Church. This coming Friday evening she and her friends, under the auspices of Kathleen Adams, are performing a wonderful selection of classical music, with reception to follow. Olivia is entering her senior year at Boston University, majoring in opera and vocal performance. Many of my readers know of her beautiful singing. We would be delighted to see you there. I don’t typically send non-gardening related notices, but, she is my daughter–please forgive.

Happy last days of August–not to despair–summer doesn’t officially end until September 21st. September and October are two of the most beautiful months in our region. The light becomes warmly atmospheric, and if we are fortunate, the balmy weather will persist.

All very best wishes,


  • I loved Kim’s article about the Monarchs in the Cape Ann Magazine. As a new resident of Gloucester, where are some good places on Cape Ann to see the monarchs? I’ve been out a couple of times to try to find them on the described coastal bushes and flowers and I haven’t had any luck.


  • Thanks Kim for your outstanding photos of the Monarch Butterfly.
