Herbaceous - the ones I have are double ended - medium nib on one end, and fine on the other.

Which cosmos is this if it is?

Looks like Rubenza to me - have grown it from seed for the first time here, and it is a lovely deep maroon colour - really pleased with it

I was there Fairy - just ducked when the cameras pointed in our direction 


I was at my one and only Wimbledon final (in row ZZZ) the year Andre beat Goran in 5 sets .....it was fantastic.  Me and Mum shouted ourselves hoarse.  We were delighted that Agassi won - but I also cried many years later when Ivanisevic finally won his own title.  Love Wimbledon


Hampton Court was lovely lovely.  Will load some pics on here tomorrow.
