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. I was surprised to see the cardinal tucked up the eaves and among the vines. He is usually more skittish than that.

  3. I wonder if there are grapes there later in the year. I’m told pruning vines takes a lot of skill.

    1. There are grapes there, strictly for the birds, who enjoy them terrifically in the fall. They are darkish colored. They might even be concord grapes. 😉
