It hardly seems possible but it's true... we have reached the one year mark observing the Barnes Preserve overlook area. This last month brings with it signs of change, the jewelweed is dying back, the Virginia knotweed is standing tall, the fungus is growing strong, the hickory nuts are ripening and the squirrels are having a feast! This is such a special place, enjoy the gif moving through the year right in front of your eyes!
If you have been following the blog for some time you may remember the project I did last year where I photographed one hill over the span of a year. Watching the changes through a full year is an amazing experience so, yep, I've been at it again! This year I wanted to see how Brown's Lake Bog changes, when it's big growth and diebacks are, what's blooming. While this post doesn't show the full year, I will be continuing with the project and posting monthly updates from this point on.
Above each image you'll see the date and some observations from that time.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
