Before the Lights Came On

Tower Hill Botanical Garden in West Boylston, MA is well known for its astonishing winter color and light show most evenings during the holidays.

As I hiked the trails there this afternoon, I was immersed in the blue of Mr. Wachusett, the reds and oranges of the winter berries and the golds of the Wildlife Pond. Even the emerald of the famous Moss Steps sparkled with an overlay of red leaves. Throughout my walk, I was treated to a vibrant palette of colors even before the electricity was turned on!

About the author jmankowsky

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United Stares, where I have recently retired from public school teaching after thirty-four years. I am a nature photographer, particularly focusing on the the wide variety of birds to be found in this area. I am a keen supporter of the Massachusetts Audubon and the exceptional work that they do in education and protecting nature. It pleases me that many of the photographs I have posted here have also been displayed on the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA website. I would love to connect with other primary school teachers in the hope that these photos might be useful in inspiring children to a greater connection with nature.
