Yesterday, I peered out into the gardens through the kitchen window.  I watched as an assortment of butterflies flit from flower to flower and bush to bush dancing on the light breeze.  I saw a female hummingbird sip nectar from the flowers on the deck.  A daily visitor, she has also been enjoying the red…

Scenes from the parade on Main St, Cotuit Children decorated their bikes and wagons. Betsy Ross Antique cars paraded patriotically one by one. Children threw candy from classic cars.
