Early Summer Refuge

Tower Hill Botanic Garden is well known for its wide variety of gardens, but did you know it is also home to a wildlife refuge? This area features a half acre pond that is completely surrounded by native wetland shrubs and perennials to discourage Canada Geese, and to provide food and cover for wildlife. You can view a wide variety of plants and animals from the two rustic pavilions nearby– just don’t be scared by the realistic life sized cut-out of a fox, also used to deter unwanted creatures!

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United States--a wonderful area for nature, art and culture. Using a compact camera, I celebrate daily life found here in a variety of local landscapes throughout the changing seasons.
