Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

We had a visitor tonight!



You know how much I love owls. Now we have our own resident owl! Well, for an hour or so anyway..Our dog Elsie, as blind and deaf as she is, must have sensed someone else was in her yard, even 20 feet up a tree! She was yapping, so we went outside in the rain to investigate. This photo is way too dark I know, but even though we put the exterior lights on, Ken shone a torch up at him, and I put the camera zoom on as far as it would go, this is the best I could get. If you click on the photo it should bring it up closer. Ken has been going through his bird books and looking on the Internet, but can't tell for sure what kind of owl it is. Definitely not a tawny frogmouth or barn owl..possibly a Barking Owl. It was silent, while it was up in our tree, so we weren't able to identify it by sound.
