In July 2007 I met the woman

In July 2007 I met the woman who would become my wife at work. She is an avian biologist, while I am a herpetologist. At that time I have zero interest in birds, but over the past 6 years that has changed quite a bit. I know this is a book that she would absolutely love and I truly hope that I win a copy for my wife.

For 25 years I spent time

For 25 years I spent time keeping the grass cut in my backyard then planting flowers and ornamental shrubs -- while working towards the goal of a Monet Garden in which I could sketch and paint. One day I was overcome with sadness at the loss of habitat for all the other creatures and my selfishness it using the little land I had for pure aesthetics. Since then over the last 5 years -- I have worked every day to make my backyard a "Wild Place" and a haven for wildlife -- Oddly, by doing so, my Wild Place reminds me even more of Monet's Garden.I have many birds now -- and I would love as much to include them in my Art as in the Garden we share.
