Your Bio

Howdy from the Rocky Mountains in beautiful Colorado!

I live in God's beautiful garden - and I absolutely love it! A native Texan, I know what it's like to have scorching heat (you can fry an egg on the sidewalk and I have done it), twisters (seen more than my share), flash floods (who dumped the bucket?) and ice storms in the same day. Give me fluffy snow and Rocky Mountains anytime!

I am a volunteer naturalist (at Rocky Mountain National Park), learning about nature and wildlife in Colorado.

Since moving here to Colorado, I have quickly become an avid photographer - nature and wildlife - and, with the park close by, am also a "beginner ornithologist" (that's a "bird geek" for you Texans). As such, I have several bird and animal photos to display.

My main website, http://janetmariespage.blogspot.com - is new - and the best place to see my needlework and links to artwork. I am available for comission work - and, my artwork and photography are also available for purchase - check out my site for more details.

May God's peace be with all of you.
