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. We had a productive Spring for the Iris here this year too. I had more Iris in my yard this year than I have had in the last five years. They are beautiful while they last!

  1. Lovely to see these beautiful bearded irises, which always seem so traditional and so different from the small genus of South African wild irises that I posted about recently.
