Taken in Southsea Rose Garden. Also known as Blanket Flowers.

My computer is now fixed and running fine. Basically both HD and the SSD had become corrupted during a routine update. Both drives had to be wiped completely - luckily I had an external back up drive and the engineer was able to to successfully recover the Operating System and all my data, including my photos! There's a lesson here for everyone :-)

Hmm, this story sounds familiar Keith. I had a similar experience some time back. I also had one occasion where after a Windows update, three of my internal SSD's were corrupted and I lost lots of valuable info. Like you, I fortunately had back-ups too. I am quite sure that if we were not connected to the internet, especially in regards to auto updates our computers would live much longer. Good that you are back to speed. - Another great bloom from you here too. Well done.

Keep safe. Herb

Thanks Herb.

I think I'm going to hedge my bets and get some storage in the clouds as well, just in case! I really need a new iMac, but I'd have to sell a kidney to get one :-))

I love this flower. In German we call it "Kokardenblume" (Cockade Flower) or "Malerblume" (Painter's Flower). Both names fit perfectly to this lovely flower, because the blossom looks like a cockade and because it is so colourful that you could think a painter had coloured the petals.
