2nd Instar Black Swallowtail Caterpillar ~ Willa Brosnihan Photo

Monday I had the great joy of being given the grand tour of the O’Maley Innovation School Butterfly Garden recently installed by Mrs. McGrath’s sixth grade class. We first had a screening of my film Life Story of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly and then went out to the garden to see the very same caterpillars!

The garden hits all the right notes with caterpillar food plants and colorful nectar-rich, butterfly attracting flowers. With the bed dug entirely by the students (you can see by the surrounding beds that the soil must have been incredibly compacted), prepped, and all planting done by the kids it is truly a fabulous accomplishment. You’ll see amazingly adorned handmade and beautifully painted informational signs and butterfly baths.

The garden was made possible though an award winning project created by students Emma Duckworth, Willa Brosnihan, and Kelsey Lowthers. For more information see the Awesome Gloucester Foundation O’Maley Butterfly Garden project page here .

John and Cathy Burnett Represent! At A Nats Game

Joey,

Attached is a photo of me and my wife Cathy at a recent Washington Nationals game in DC.  I grew up in Magnolia and graduated from GHS in 1966 and am still a Sox fan but living in northern Virginia for the past 27 years the Nationals have become my National League team.  I love GMG and it helps me keep up with things in my old home town. Keep up the great job.

Robin Jones Represents In Old Blighty

Joey,
Just finishing a two week holiday in old blighty. Came over for an automotive event (55th anniversary of the Mini) and figured a weekend wasn’t enough.
I went all the way out to Land’s End. If you’re ever over here, don’t bother. Total tourist trap.
Anyhow, having a blast touring the Cotswolds & sampling their beers and ciders.
Sorry the GMG sticker is so small in the picture. It’s hard to get a total stranger to frame a shot properly.

If you’re an avid reader of GMG you read the blog post by Lisa Steinocher-

LISA STEINOCHER ASKS- “DO I DESERVE A STICKER?”

Posted on June 27, 2014 by Joey C 4 comments

Well the picture above provides your answer Smile

Lisa writes yesterday from home-

Back on Southern soil and had boiled peanuts and barbecue ribs for my fourth instead of clam chowder and Virgilio’s rolls ( hand cut with sesame seeds like they always use to make:)
I wanted to thank you for taking the time to visit with my dad, daughter and me.  And I can’t thank you enough for my stickers.  I really appreciate it! I’m very proud of them:)
Ill continue to enjoy staying connected to my Gloucester roots through your wonderful website.
Take care and best wishes,
Lisa Steinocher (aka the missed placed Yankee who lives too far inland)
