While on the subject of great chefs and great food, we still have wonderful memories of this year's "Lob- ster Festival" at Burlington's Summer Winter restaurant. Helping to pioneer the "garden to table" philosophy, Clark Frasier and Mark Gaier, the nationally ac- claimed chefs behind Arrows Restaurant and MC Perkins Cove in Maine, have created Summer Winter in the tra- dition of their award win- ning dining destinations. For a listing of upcoming fall harvest culinary events at the restaurant, which is located in the Burlington Marriott Hotel, visit www. And, when you visit the res- taurant, be sure to tour the wonderful adjacent green- house, which is full of many edible greens and other plants used by the chefs. Happy Columbus Day Still Here...

Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, Mass. will host "Bewitched, Both- ered and Bewildered," the Massachusetts Orchid So- ciety's annual orchid show, which takes place on Fri- day, October 30 from 1-5 p.m. and Saturday, October 31 & Sunday, November 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thousands of breath- taking (and sometimes spooky!) orchids will be on display throughout the Visi- tors Center and around the Orangerie at Tower Hill. This show is known for its spectacular variety, creativ- ity and informational value. As Orchid Society member Joanna Eckstrom explains, "...with the dozen or so orchid societies and individual or- chid enthusiasts who par- ticipate, 'Bewitched, Both- ered and Bewildered' is sure to be one of our best efforts ever." Some of the orchid societies participating in the show include: A&P Orchids, New Earth Orchids, Frosty Hollow Orchids and more. Orchid vendors from across the country will offer a wide variety of plants, sup- plies and even jewelry for sale. Art and educational exhibits will be held each day of the show and experts will answer orchid growing ques- tions from visitors. Also, members of the Mas- sachusetts Orchid Society will offer demonstrations on orchid care, instructional videos, and guided tours of the show. One exciting addition to this year's Orchid Show is a judged "Fra- grance" category. Although the judging ses- sions themselves are not open to the public, the re- sults of the judging will be on display at the show. As Eckstrom explains, "Orchid scents range from delight- fully sweet to sickeningly fetid; orchid scents 'turn-on' at different times of day (to attract their pollinators)." The show and its associ- ated programs are free with garden admission. Tower Hill Botanic Garden is lo- cated at 11 French Drive, Boylston, Mass., exit 24 off Route 290.
