On 9/16/17, Dawn and I went to the Northampton Community Garden, mainly to =
see Tom Gagnon's garden plots. It was an overcast morning in the high sixti=
es, warming to around 80 degrees by the time we left, at 12:30. Tom planted=
lots of beautiful Verbena, surrounded by red, white and yellow Zinnias. On=
ce the sun came out, we sat on the comfortable bench he provided and watche=
d the butterflies flock to his garden. At one point, there were six Monarch=
s, several Cabbage Whites, Clouded Sulphers and Painted Ladies all in his g=
arden at once. Thanks Tom, for all of your hard work planting a beautiful g=
arden, attracting lots of bees and butterflies!
