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. Did you ever play Pato, pato. ganso as a child, Elvira? I taught my first grade class this and some other Spanish songs when trying to get them to learn a bit of Spanish in a fun way 😉

    Nice pond there, visiting your friends the avians? One time, I was playing golf with some friends and it was time for me to drive a shot, by the way this golf course was always occupied by Canada geese (Crap all over!) Then when I did my shot, some geese took on flight and I hit one that came down. I yelled duck, duck! One of my friends which all were laughing, said it’s not a duck, it’s a goose…I told him I wanted the goose to duck and not get hurt! the rest of the game we laughed all along. The goose went down but not hurt. This is a true story. Thank you, Julie. 🙂
