Coin of the realm

In many of the places we have been this last spring; Wales, Yorkshire, Northumberland and Scotland we have encountered Thrift. Especially in Wales and on the Isles of Mull we were sat among large drifts of the plant which so loves sea cliffs. Anyone who is old enough to remember the old thre’penny bit (for our American readers … it’s a coin) Thrift was depicted on the reverse. Perhaps it was designed to encourage another kind of ‘thrift’.
