About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

  1. Thank you for sharing the nature and art of your part of the world. I wanted you to know that the title of your blog was the inspiration for my blog post today titled “My Windows – My World” as I continue to share the beauty of being “Retired in Costa Rica” in my blog: https://www.charliedoggett.net/2020/01/22/my-windows-my-world/

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I love your post, and the “Retired in Costa Rica” title especially. I am two years retired after 34 years of teaching, and loving that I have time to blog!

  2. The sun, snow, and blue sky really enhance the whiteness of the buildings.It almost hurts one’s eyes.

    1. It is said that in New England’s Greek Revival style, buildings were painted white to imitate the Roman architecture. They must have forgotten that all the Roman architecture was originally painted in bright colors!

    1. Thanks. The architecture is always beautiful, and right now, the snow is as well. But, come the end of February, there will be a point where the snow gets “old” and I long for Spring!

      1. In Charleston the buildings are as old, if not older, but a very different architecture.
