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.)

A very hot day in Melbourne.

Everyone was asleep except me and the chooks!   I thought it would be fun to get some photos.  The chooks like to get under this Acacia shrub and peck around in the shade.
  Then they come out into the sun and have a dust bath, spreading out their wings.
 They look like they are dead, but when I get too close, they spring up, ruffle their feathers, and waddle off.
 I had a dish of water under the table and umbrella, and the chooks make the most of it.

The cats aren't silly - they were both inside in the airconditioned lounge room, but still like to lie in the window to get some sun.  Tiger was sound asleep....
 ...until I tapped on the glass.

Topsy was asleep too.
 She was not amused when I poked the camera at her.
  Ken was having a bad time in the heat, so he spent the afternoon snoozing on the couch.

Thanks for a glimpse of hot sunshine. It's a bit more restrained around here...
