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 handful of baby budgies.

Ken's budgies have hatched another clutch of babies. There are five of them in his hand here! This was taken a week or so ago. Two of these now have their first feathers and to Ken's utter amazement, they are Lutinos! (all yellow with pink eyes) Photos coming shortly.

These are the first two that hatched out a month ago - doesn't take long for these little critters to grow up!

Ken is amazing! Not only is his health in good order, but he’s bringing new babies into the world! I think the birds must be in an especially good habitat to breed successfully.

Nice of you to have a party with Helen, I am sure your presence and good cheer added considerably to her wellbeing.

Best wishes

Oh, my, Ken must really know what he's doing! Isn't it amazing how those little birds come into the world looking well...looking pretty funny, but so quickly turn into such beautiful birds.
