I am currently working as an intern, for the Environmental Department of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan. I am making a guide of alternatives trees to plant when removing dead or dying ash trees. The publication is a non-profit project for public outreach and education. I would like to use some of the photographs on this site with the proper credits. Would you please let me know who the photographer is for the Black Willow photographs, so I may give proper credit.
Hello Neighbor, thank you for highlighting some of the wonders of the magical places in our town. There are so many more. In the small landlocked forest behind me are old foundations and bottle dumps from the 40s and prior amongst the aging forest. Perhaps you will wander over this way in your travels.
You’re welcome and thank you. I don’t do as much bottle digging as I once did but it’s always interesting to see them and the cellar holes. I’ve found quite a few lilacs, peonies and daylilies around cellar holes too.
You don’t say where you’re located so I’m not sure if I’ve been there or not. I’ve been to most of the towns surrounding Keene and Peterborough at one time or another.
Thank you Karen, I’m glad you’re enjoying the photos.
The best place I know of to see native plants in a garden setting is Distant Hill Gardens in Walpole. I have a link to them under “favorite links” over on the right side of the page.
As always, you inspire me to get outdoors–despite the cold! Your photos are so beautiful and manage to convey the damp chill that rises up as the day closes. Winter days may be short, but the light is the most beautiful. I also love your macro photos of the tiny wondrous things you find. Thank you for teaching us to pay attention.
