Flowers blossom. Birds welcome their young with song. The fog of winter lifts. Daylight stretches longer into the night. The grass goes green as dandelions invade yards. All are welcome signs of spring as Mother Nature closes the book on an unusually mild north country winter.
When we went searching for signs of spring for this issue of NNY Living, we stumbled upon Andrea Parisi, a graphic designer for Timeless Frames who lives in Sackets Harbor. Andrea is an amateur photographer and blogger whose passion for Northern New York and its natural splendor inspired her to create the blog www.iloveupstatenewyork.wordpress.com. We are pleased to feature some of her best images of spring.
Clockwise from top, morning fog begins to move out over Sackets Harbor. A newborn bird chirps in its nest, waiting for its mother to return with food. The sun sets in spectacular fashion over an open meadow near Sandy Creek. A wood hyacinth comes to life in Sandy Creek. An old pickup truck sits idle in a Sackets Harbor field.
Editor’s note: This is an extended gallery of photos provided by Andrea Parisi. A smaller selection was chosen for print.
