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! The pink zinnias that I grew from seed this year really jazzed things up a bit, I think! I ‘m going to try and save some seeds to grow them next year.

    1. The phlox have been there for years, and never fail. This is my first try at growing zinnias from seed-usually I just buy a few plants. Zinnia seeds are so easy and cost effective! I bought this bargain 4-back of seeds online last winter, and everything bloomed. I’m hooked now.
