shakespeare in love

We have a wonderful theatre arts group here brought to us by the historic Opera House in the village of Stonington, Maine. They are currently preparing to put on “Shakespeare in Love” . I have two tiny vintage volumes of Shakespeare for sale at Art By Katy Gallery— I’m hoping that one of the thespians wanders in and can’t resist them. Meanwhile, here’s more info about the show from OHA’s newsletter blast:

Nothing says July at the Opera House better than rehearsals in full swing and the lupines on their own parade. We hope you've got your tickets for Shakespeare in Love (July 18-28), the perfect way to celebrate twenty years of Opera House Arts. Don't miss this heart-soaring play about finding freedom of the self through love; love of craft, love of another, love of community. The cast is hard at work making this playful story look joyous and easy. Their swashbuckling characters romp through theater-making in Elizabeth London-- and love, too! Did we mention love? Join them. Tickets are on sale here.

80 intrepid souls

The turnout for the Island Garden Tour 2019 was terrific despite —or perhaps because of—the gloominess of the day. 80 intrepid souls plus a few wandering friends traipsed through my garden. They all received the invitation to return anytime this summer to watch the later bloomers unfold in July and August.

my lemon day lilies

These lemon day lilies waited at least 14 summers to bloom for me because they were on a shady side of the house until I relocated them to the sunny areas of my garden. I’m told that this variety was quite popular on Deer Isle in the 1930s. Since my house was built in 1919, I would not be surprised if these plants are nearly as old as the farmhouse is. Come on the garden tour Saturday June 29th to see them in all their glory. There are several patches scattered throughout the landscape.
