Not important, moving on. Wizarding historians agree that Merlin is the wisest of wizards, though often travelling in rather unusual directions and especially when over-caffeinated. Are you bedazzled by his clairvoyant claim he will soon be in your plant collection? Excellent. His spell is working.
