Green Living & Gardening
Patricia is a bit of a green freak (not tiresomely so, you understand), so it’s no great surprise that she writes a fair bit on the subject.
If it’s remotely to do with the environment, she'll cover it: sustainable living, green families, eco travel – you name it.
Patricia is also knowledgeable about gardens and vegetable-growing and has even opened her own garden to the public (never again, as it happens, but that’s another story).
