Cape Ann TV video tour of our garden

Quickly posting as I am under several deadlines and determined to get all fully underway. I believe I mentioned that this past week, Lisa Smith and her Cape Ann TV After-the Beach Teen Video Club stopped by for a tour of my garden. Here’s a short clip, with a wonderful surprise visit by the friendly Question Mark butterfly, who very conveniently, stole the show.

The teens and Lisa did a great job and all very much enjoyed the beautiful creatures that flew in and out of our story. It is not easy to focus on tiny subjects using a heavy camera attached to a tripod. The full video of the garden tour and interview will air in the near future and we will keep you posted.

    Thank you Kim, that was wonderful. Hope your summer is going well.

    I have seen a lot of spicebush swallowtails but not one black swallowtail this summer. Have you seen any? I should have planted asparagus!

    Hello John,

    Funny you should write today.

    I spent the morning photographing, amongst other subjects, six Black Swallowtail caterpillars–and then a female adult came waltzing in this afternoon–in pristine, newly emerged condition.

    A gorgeous male Black Swallowtail emerged from my garden about a week or so ago. My spicebush plant is tall, vigorous, green, and lush–but not a single Spicebush Swallowtail have I spotted this season.
