Also Star, at the end of the result show when the credits are running you see the interviews taking to the other stars about the results and in the background you see the crew packing up. They are not going to be doing that as quickly.

Hi verdun, these ones are just now losing their flowers and are still lush green.

So I think I will move them. There are one or two dotted all over, so I think I will group them altogether.
