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. Your photos all look slightly surreal, Julie, but oh, so beautiful. I hope the plants will be ok once the ice melts.

    1. This whole winter is surreal, Tanja. Extreme cold, then record-breaking high temps. Crazy, and worrying, of course. I try to enjoy the beauty as much as possible.

      P.S. How did you make out in the last storm?

      1. We measured about 7 inches in our yard, all very much appreciated. The temperature since then hasn’t exceeded the mid-40s, so the snow is melting slowly and it feels quite wintry.

  2. Always a pretty day after a storm. Same here except we have a lot more snow and it sparkled like diamonds.
