Summer-time means that it’s time for the Cotuit Library to have its annual Outdoor Movie! Join us on the lawn outside the Library for an evening under the stars with some popcorn and this year’s featured film: The Lego Movie: The Second Part. Don’t forget your blankets, chairs, and bug-spray, and we’ve got the rest. Read this synopsis and plan on a night of family fun:

“The citizens of Bricksburg face a dangerous new threat when LEGO DUPLO invaders from outer space start to wreck everything in their path. The battle to defeat the enemy and restore harmony to the LEGO universe takes Emmet, Lucy, Batman and the rest of their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds that test their courage and creativity.”

This program is free but please register at cotuitlibrary.org/events--activities or contact the Library.

Sturgis Library Presents Three Gardens as Part of Hydrangea Fest 2019

Barnstable Village Garden Tours. July 13th and 15th, 2019 10 AM—4 PM 
RAIN OR SHINE!
Tickets are $5 per garden, purchased in advance at Sturgis Library (3090 Main Street Rte. 6A) or at the entrance to each garden.  Cash only on tour days.
Don’t forget to visit our Garden Boutique at the 61 Rendezvous Lane property for a great shopping experience.  There will be garden-related items including artwork, pottery, soaps, tabletop planters, jewelry, scarves, decor, and much more!  

Garden Descriptions
Meander Through This Family Property61 Rendezvous Lane, Barnstable VillageParking:  Please park on the house side of street only.Well established gardens surround this charming Cape home and compound belonging to the same family for five generations.Enjoy the sweeping views of the fields and distant bay. View the arbor with climbing roses, the hedges along the property, and a large vegetable garden. Not to be missed is the glorious 57 year old trumpet vine planted by the current owners’ grandparents in 1962.While there are no hydrangeas on the property, the perennial gardens have essentially remained the same since 1929. A family member states, “…the Big House has been long famed for it’s 100 year old roses, now well past that venerable age and still a sight to behold”.  The owners are instructing the roses to be in perfect bloom for your viewing pleasure!Visitors are invited to walk through the yard and down the grass driveway to view additional gardens and views at house #49. The family requests you do not visit the red house at #39 as it is not part of the tour.

Sweeping Vistas
59 Otter Lane, Barnstable VillageParking:  Please park on right side of the circle or on street as space allows.This lovely, newly built seaside home is at the end of a quiet lane in the Cummaquid section of Barnstable. As you enter this beautiful property, notice the stunning specimen of a Bloodgood Japanese maple tree and ornamental shrubs that frame the front of the house. Notice the house details including the Cape Cod cutout!Enter the back yard through the gate on the right. Hydrangeas aplenty surround the property, adding to the glorious views of the bay and marshes and the Keveney Lane bridge.A large stone patio, roses and sea grasses complement this stunning setting.  Words are not necessary to describe the views and serenity of this property.

A Naturalist’s Hidden World
166 Indian Trail, CummaquidParking: Please park in the field opposite the house, on the right side of the street, or in the front part of the circular drive if space allows. A parking attendant will be present for guidance.Hidden behind a trellis banked in climbing hydrangeas is a unique treasure, a garden that is the creation of a loving naturalist and artist.This garden was on the hydrangea tour last year and is brought back by popular demand. The garden plantings and specimens, including but not limited to irises, young hollies, bee balms, Japanese maples, red twig dogwoods, ginkgoes, butterfly bushes, and over 100 varieties of daylillies, are too numerous to list. Fortunately, the owner has meticulously labeled her plantings to help us navigate the setting.Scattered throughout the property are her handcrafted sculptures and benches created from cherry and cedar wood. These objects alone are worth the visit! Additional ceramic pieces from Scargo Pottery and Barnstable Pottery add color as well, as do the whimsical “flowers” found throughout the gardens.Finally, at the rear of the property, one enjoys the tranquil views of Barnstable Harbor and marvels at the sacred space created to honor the history of the area.

Description:

Our popular Hidden Harbors Photo Tours return! Journey off the beaten track to explore and photograph classic scenes of Cape Cod. Each week, photographer John Tunney will guide a group to a new area to capture some of the Cape’s special magic. We will visit secluded beaches, quiet town landings, harbors and marshes, as well as occasional stops at nearby sites such as watermills, windmills and lighthouses. John will offer instruction and tips on creative photography techniques, composition and how to “see” a scene.
Tours begin in early evening about two hours before sunset when the summer light is at its best, and end with the last light.

WEATHER CANCELLATION POLICY
All tours will go out as scheduled on cloudy or clear days. Cancellations for inclement weather will be at the sole discretion of the instructor. If the instructor determines the weather (i.e. lightning storm) will prohibit the tour from going out, the tour will be rescheduled or a refund will be given.
