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.

    It won’t be very long and everything will be covered in white. Different in colors but as beautiful as before! Thank you, Julie. 🙂

    1. So true, H.J. I love the snow as well (when I don’t have to drive in it) , until about February. Around thenI am ready for some warmth and green!

    1. Thanks! It is a beautiful area, not in the way of big majestic spaces, but one with lots of smaller gems, I think.

  5. The slightly arched branch in photo # 4 looks like an inviting place to sit or stretch out on, Julie. I imagine it’s wide enough to cradle a human.

  6. Those wooden fences seem to have become an integral part of the landscape. A fence series sounds like a great idea!

    1. I’m thinking about a fence series: wooden, stone, metal, picket–lots of variety there!
