Geoff, further ......I lived in Italy for 15 years and although I still love it and, of course, the climate is really may seem strange but the UK still has a lot going for it.

Bjay, now even done an avatar! Wonders will never cease.

Geoff, why 'anatomical' ? It is a flower. Just checked the definition of 'anatomical' so I don't understand:- 

Geoff, Valencia sounds very nice. I have never been there I have to say, What I suggest you do, if you can, is let out your English home and go to  Valencia in the winter months. And....hope I don't sound like the proverbial pessimist if you do sell and go there always keep a bolt hole in England just in case things don't work out

Geoff, where are you thinking of moving to in Spain? Have you lived there in the winter months? Just don't want you to make a mistake. Also, check out the health situation before you take the leap!

Lottie, yes...sunflower but that was already taken so having Italian links I thought I would go for it in Italian. Also, I am of a sunny dispostion (most of the time) and I thought I would start the NY in a positive mood. What do you think?

Chucking it down here and cannot summon up the wish to look at seeds or seed catalogues for the time being .....seriously feeling like hibernating to be honest
