I had the great pleasure of speaking to the Williamstown Garden Club on August 9, a beautiful day. Linda Conway invited me to speak and gave me a most gracious introduction. Here she is with me and Dianne Glick, the President of the Club. Linda had lived in Cambridge and been engaged in publishing so I was particularly honored that she thought my book worthy of inviting me to speak about it. As always, the technology was an initial challenge — always great anxiety as I wondered whether I would be able to show the beautiful photographs, taken by the two great English garden photographers, Andrew Lawson and Jerry Harpur. After a few challenging moments, Claudia Ellet came to the rescue. Between Claudia and Charlie, the screen and projector finally managed to work together. I was surprised that such a good size crowd came to sit indoors when they could have been out enjoying a rare summer day — they were a wonderfully enthusiastic group. Afterwards, some of the members produced a most impressive spread of delicious offerings while I signed books. Charlie and I also managed to fit in a visit to the Clark Institute, always a special treat. We also learned that the beautiful plantings we admired in the center of the town were created and maintained by this very active Club.
