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.)

Photos of the flowering shrubs in our front garden.

Happy Christmas to everyone who may be reading this today! In the past few days I have been photographing our garden, front and back - the flowers on our shrubs are stunning this year, so I'm taking the opportunity of recording them in their glory, as who knows when they will flower like this again.
This is one of our native Hibiscus shrubs.

This Oleander shrub has been here since we bought the house 30 years ago, but I've never seen it looking so beautiful before.

One of several varieties of Geranium in the garden, which are all in full bloom.
Pretty Ivy geranium spilling over from a pot.
As one comes toward the stairs to the front door, you see the Oleander and the Agapanthus.

After all that walking around the yard taking photos, I was so tired I needed to lie down for a bit.  Tiger decided he need to lie with me and guard my toes.
