I agree that it was a lovely puzzle. By luck I placed the entries on the correct side first time. I was also nonplussed at the end when I looked at the spirals since, to me, the honeysuckle looked as though it spiralled anti-clockwise. The later reference to 'right-hand-thread' settled my doubts.
I liked the double clues, which knitted together very well, often seamlessly. Moving words to generate a message was a welcome change of gimmick from the increasingly common ‘extra letters generated by wordplay.’ I also liked the fact that sense was not impaired by moving words.
