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.)

Feathered visitors.

We've had an extraordinary amount of birdlife in our garden this year, due largely to the destruction of their habitat during the bushfires in February. In the last two days we have had large flocks of galahs and corellas in our front yard, coming to eat at the feeding platform Ken built on to our front verandah. That was designed to serve three or four birds at any one time, but lately they are lining up on adjacent trees to swoop down when they see a space! You can see them here.

Hello. How wonderful that you're feeding those poor birds.

I don't know (to reply to an earlier post) whether I've been reading you for 4 years, but it must be at least 3, I'd think.

How wonderful, to see your garden and your feeders full of hungry birds, even though they do cause a mess and kick up a din. I'm sure a huge area of their normal habitat was destroyed in the fires, how sad.
