Good news about the PC. I never realise how much I use it until it goes wrong or slows down. Smile
What a lovely lily. I'm so glad the ladybird can easily get out.

I thought it was just a picture of the lily from the thumbnail and then, on opening it, what a treat. I like them all, but am amused that in V2 the ladybird looks like it's perched on the spathe, and then the lovely positioning of it in V3 including a little shadow. I'll go for V3 then.
