And as for casting nasturtiums at SimpleResize Wigtox, you should realise it's meant for use on devices like iPads, where it is really easy to use. Horses for courses!

Thanks for that SS. Wouldn't doubt you for a minute. My knowledge of flowers is fairly limited purely through lack of interest. I was told on the night I won it that the lilac flowers were roses, I just took her word for it. Now trees I am not too bad on as I have to know them for work reasons. Come across them all the time and we have to know what they are. I have my Mitchell Beazley identification book for 30 odd years and it has all the tricks in it that I regularly see you mention for identifying either in or out of leaf. Not always easy but at least the field gets narrowed down.

The point I was making bad guy was that I tried five times to reduce them down in small increments and the only indicator was a percentage. If it gave the mb as well it would be far better. Maybe through usage one would get go know the percentage that a 2 or 3 mb photo needs to be reduced to. What ended up happening was a photo the size of a postage stamp which is no good to anyone. Compressing them as I did the second time is much better as the pictures don't shrink in size and still remain perfectly clear. Not disputing that it is easy to use and it must have its uses somewhere. Not too difficult to slide ones finger across the screen.

Lisianthus! That's the word - I can never remember it!

When I got married, a friend did all the flowers for us, I wanted cream, lilac and rose colours (roses, freesia) she chose lisianthus as well because of their colour. They were beautiful.

Stalks?! Er, thanks but no thanks. Shocked I have enough 'stalks' in the garden right now. Laughing

You just wouldn't know what you would find out there at 2:30 in the morning.
