        Sorry Verdun, you need to double check your letters as Hyacinth Bucket doesn't fit :scratch: And I'd put her rather in the mauves and pinks section anyways... are you sure about the colours? And since she doesn't really like jokes, that clue is obviously wrong as well.

        Very nice try Dear, just please be careful to fit the clues into my solution more carefully next time please :pathd:

          Are we looking for a plant or just a random something :scratch:
          At first I thought it would be the Latin name of a plant but your clues suggest something else :th scifD36:

          Well evidently it`s herbaceous, so I s`pose it`s a plant.

            Why thank you Tetters! Obviously the crowd is starting to see my bulletproof reasoning and bending towards Hyacinth Bucket, hyacinth being a herbaceous plant (well, a bulb), is fond of her hat and has qualities which apply to a character better than a plant (the jokes bit).

            I only wish Verdun would fit his clues better to my perfect solution!

            Perhaps I shouldn't have watched that clip posted by Jack Sparrow... sorry... I'm probably channelling Hyacinths spirit... :redface: :snorky:
