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.)

Latest photos of the front yard upgrade.

Today I went to the Quilt and Craft Fair with my friend Connie, and she asked how our landscaping was going.  I said "Did I tell you about that?" and she said no, she saw it on my blog.  So I promised I would post some more photos to show what Tony has been doing.  I got home from the Fair to find he had been very busy, finished the brick steps, and moving rocks around to hold the soil on the slope up to the wall.  He has pretty much finished that area and all that has to be done now is plant it out.
 There will be areas of gravel and grass around the circular bricks, and plants near the walls.

The  area where the wheelbarrow is at the moment will be gravel, as Ken wanted somewhere to park a car if need be, it will also give us room to manouvre cars in and out of the garage instead of backing down the driveway which can be perilous at times when there is more traffic up and down our street.  The areas on either side of that will be mulched and planted out.

Now I know I definitely want Tony to come over here. He is doing a brilliant job and can't wait to see it all done.

Hugs to you both

That looks very smart. Tony sounds like a gem.
