    1. It's Nigella(Love in a mist). It gets balloony type dry pods and drops seed everywhere, it comes up every year.

  6. You learn something new every day. I had no idea nigella was a flower. I thought she was a gorgeous looking Pommie cook with her own TV show ;-)

    1. They look quite spiky, but the leaves are ferny and feathery. Very pretty in the garden.

    1. I have seen them on your header. They are good value, coming up free from seed and looking all pretty in the garden. Mine are still flowering, no pods yet. I thought I had a pink one once, but haven't noticed it come up this year.

  13. One of my very favorite flowers! We have both blue and pink nigella. They self-seed prolifically which in the case of nigella, is a very good thing!
