 A beautiful landscape plant. Like the irises planted against the same wall (yesterday's photo), also very easy to grow in dry soil. The leaves are very resinous and they smell like "Christmas" to me. 15/Jul/10 1:21 AM |  |
 Well todays tough was to9o tough for me this time of night... I'm off to bed. 15/Jul/10 1:42 AM |  |

 in my first attempt, i mistakenly eliminated (8)c7 instead of (8)c8 from the loop - off course from there. the final solution uses no complicated steps and only 3 chains - max depth 5 for the loop. certainly not a 9.0 puzzle! 15/Jul/10 3:41 AM |  |
 mea culpa: solution requires (uses) the kraken after the loop (too much rum last night). 15/Jul/10 4:56 AM |  |

 note: steps 6, 7 replace Steve's finned swordfish step; otherwise almost the same. 15/Jul/10 7:03 AM |  |
