              Thank you @KFF it's a bit of a bully it can take over and it's difficult to dig out, the roots go right down.

                I've got a white one ( can't remember it's name off the top of my head ), had it three years and it's never flowered.

                I've got a white one, doesn't seem to grow as vigorous, I think it took time to flower.

                  Fell in love with this plant this year after setting free seeds from one of the garden mags. last year.
                  Echinacea purpurea.
                  I can’t stop looking at it.
                  Apologies for overkill....

                          Only the casing and some of the parts. The hard drives will be used for storage etc. I'm thinking I shall keep my photos on the old drive (backed up to another drive) and not keep them on the new computer. We've only got 90,000 photos. :rolleyespink: :heehee:
