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.)

Update on our back yard plants.

These are some of the plants we've had in for a while, which are going through their first flowering season.

The last of my tulips to flower this season - one black and one white.

Aust. Native Hibiscus.

I've forgotten the name of this, but it is a ground cover, planted near rocks in the hope it will cover them.
Native Geraldton Wax Flower.
Not sure if this is a Hakea or a Callistemon. We bought several of each last year and I've misplaced the name tags - grrrrr!

Never heard of a black tulip, is it rare? you must have a green thumb with all your lovely plants and I'm sure they appreciated the extra drink your broken pipe gave them.

Love the plants.
The last one is a Callistemon by the way.
It's strange that what you call the native Hibiscus we call an anemone in the UK.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
