Thanks - sorry about the song! I've just noticed my X20 is still on winter time! (I'm not an early bird and just after 7 was early enough for me!)

How strange and no ideas, sorry. If poppies were to revert I would expect it to be to red?! ( I was cross on Mon for not having my camera with me when I saw some salmon pink poppies, huge blooms.)
