On Tuesday, May 13th, at 6pm, I will be giving a free guided tour of the butterfly gardens at Willowdale Estate, located in Topsfield. After the garden tour, we will have a screening of my film, Life Story of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly, and serve a selection of Willowdale’s exquisite refreshments. I hope you can join us!

For the month of April I, along with Noah Quist, Willowdale’s new Director of Businesss Development, are featured in the Willowdale newsletter’s Meet the Team. Sarah Boucher, Willowdale’s Senior Sales and Marketing Director asked several questions of me for the feature. The following answer is in response to a question about creating welcoming habitat gardens, “My passion for creating butterfly and habitat gardens developed initially because I think butterflies and songbirds are exquisitely beautiful creatures and I wanted to draw these wild things to the gardens that I was designing. Butterflies and songbirds bring a garden to life with their grace in movement and fascinating life stories. The more that I learn, the greater the need becomes apparent for sharing information about the connection between native wildflowers and the web of life that they support.”
