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.

  2. A pretty fall sight. Go forth, milkweed seeds, and make new plants for those monarchs.

  3. Milkweed in the meadow, and that’s where it belongs. I planted milkweed around the house and it took me the whole year to get rid of them.

  6. Beautiful captures. Milkweed seeds are always so much fun to touch and spread as they are surprisingly quite soft.

  7. Seeing the shimmering silk with the seeds gives me an immediate reminder of how soft they are to touch. A lovely sensation.

    1. And, the more milkweed, the more Monarchs around here. Yay!
