Thanks for the laugh. Creative.

You're welcome. It was a slightly different take on the 'One, two, many' counting system of some aboriginal peoples.

I got 72 flower heads :) yes I counted but you knew I'd do that. A squillion indeed is a goodly amount though. A far more sensible number.

Its one of my favourites and County Down's county flower :) and also component of the H7 community Calluna vulgaris - Scilla verna heath

And now I will get me coat.

Ah, the delights of displacement activity :o)

Yeah, it's a smashing little plant.

What packing........

The packing conundrum is still fresh in my mind. When Our Lass offskied to Orkney, leaving me behind in MK, I was very fortunate to have the help of First and Second Born, otherwise I doubt I would be ready yet! If possible, use the old 'bitesize' trick of small steps, rather than worrying about the whole shebang. Choose a room and blitz it. We'll have the tape gun on standby, should you require assistance.
