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.

  4. Beautiful! And the snow looks like sand, giving the area the appearance of a beach.

    1. You are welcome, Jet. I sometimes pretend that they are ocean grasses, as I live about an hour and a half from the ocean! 😉

  6. Lovely colour palette – golden browns, white and the bright blue of the sky. Must be nice to know that winter is on the wane, beautiful as the snow has been!

    1. Thank you so much for all your thoughtful and kind comments. Yes, spring is on the way, and I am getting excited about gardening. The covid surge has passed, so that’s something to be grateful about. So worried about our tenuous world situation, and the crazy actions of some politicians in our country…..

      1. Nice to have spring gardening to look forward to. It provides a constructive distraction from all the stressful world and local news too. Just when we thought the pandemic might be easing up a bit, then the awfulness of the invasion of Ukraine and all the worrying ramifications of this horrible war.
        Sending best wishes.
