This month we went farther afield than normal; we had to bring you the story of Hillsborough, a charming little town located halfway on the Mountains-to- the-Sea Trail, a mid point on the route crossing our great state from Boone to Wilmington. We know for a fact that many coastal parents send their prodigy to one of the three prestigious schools in the state’s triangle: Chapel Hill, State or Duke. So we bring you a well-researched and photographed weekend in nearby Hillsborough, and what a weekend there could be for you. In our quest to illustrate the locavore movement — local food, served fresh, hours from the farm — it is fitting that we would end up in the American town where author Frances Mayes (“Under the Tuscan Sun”) resides, to produce the food feature that we call Under the Hillsborough Sun. It was a blast to create, and in doing so, we met new and dear friends, ate amazing food and fell in love with Hillsborough. You will, too. We have a side trip to see and learn about black-and-white cows, and the delicious milk and ice cream that can be found here locally. We have for you artist Peter Butler’s beach cows and swimmers, painted in his Clinton studio, en route from Wrightsville Beach to Hillsborough. I am thrilled to bring Allison Potter’s photographs of the D.C. Virgo Prep band to you. When I first heard of this story and how Bob Moulton donated all of the instruments, it touched my heart. It is a very encouraging story; one man can and does make a difference. by encore magazine voted Best vegetarian Food Lovey’s Celebrating 11 Years 10 WBM may 2014 In these pages you’ll find a stunning beach home in a town house on Fontenay Drive in Landfall. We also honor the mothers among us with a Mother’s Day tribute to one of world’s most recognized maternal icons: Anna McNeill Whistler of Wilmington. Her story will fascinate you. Author Frances Mayes autographs a copy of her “The Tuscan Sun Cookbook” with publisher Pat Bradford in Purple Crow Books in April. We bid farewell to one of Wrightsville’s most celebrated arbiters of style and grace, the beautiful Baby Dehler. Marietta Gwathmey’s story of her son’s rescued seagull will have you laughing along with us as we turn our attention to the month’s end, the official start of the summer season at the beach. up front Editor/Publisher PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALLISON POTTER Your LOCAL Health Food Store and Café Organic Produce and Groceries Salad, Soup, Hot & Juice bars Cafe • Catering • Supplements Health & Beauty Aids Wheat & Gluten-Free foods specials: Solgar Supplements 25% off Herbs Etc. 20% off • EuroPharma 15% off 910-509-0331 Landfall Shopping Center • 1319 Military Cutoff Road www.loveysmarket.com Celebrating spring in North Carolina, is there a finer place to be?
