Late last spring I made a trip over to the Brookline Minot Rose Garden. I frequently visit this beautiful oasis to capture some of my rose flower images. It was a rainy day and I just needed to get outside taking pictures, getting away from the computer and social networking or marketing my fine art photography online. The rose garden did not turn out a great destination this morning but a garden in the entrance way of a neighboring house was >>> Learn More.

Last winter there was an unusual population of Snowy Owls across New England. While talking to other birders I learned that there was an interruption of food supply further north which drove the birds further south. Some didn't make the journey and died of starvation. One prime location close to Boston is Parker River National wildlife refuge, and Sandy Point State Reservation on Plum Island.
