    Of course you can play. The more the merrier.

    P.S Seeds and parcels are always exciting

    My seeds for the Seed Circle are:-
    Honesty (purple - because Scarlet and Thelma wanted some)
    Quaking Grass (because they look like weevils according to mcdood)
    Cedronella Canariensis/Balm of Gilead. Has the most amazing scented leaves - very rubbable as you pass. A must grow for me.

    There may be others...............

    Me.....still deciding but some of these -
    I've collected a load of cosmos and started saving black ball cornflowers.
    I've the perennial red poppy if anyone is interested?
    Depending on how many are in the group.
    Pink sweet peas? I have a photo. Not sure if the name.
    Also have my eye on a few others...scabious maybe!

    I like quaking grass

    Iím going to have to look those up (along with most other things in the swap)

    This is the Cedronella.
    The brown bits are the seed heads. Not much to look at and a bit sprawling. Its perennial AFAIK but has disappeared some years and I miss it. Then, I'll be mooching around the garden and smell it again.........and start smiling.

    I'm still in and starting to get excited! Already saved are pilosella aurantiaca, aquilegia 'Clementine Red', welsh poppies, and the silver foliage plant cineraria cirrus, but there'll be a few additions I expect (I'm hoping the pilosella isn't regarded as a weed, personally I love it).

    Due to camera problems I can't put photos onto the Sharing the Lurve thread, but just wanted to say to Squingy that her pink morning glories from last years seed swap are flowering and they're absolutely gorgeous! Similarly, the malope which came from Norfolk Grey, it's such a pretty flower and is thriving. Also, the knautia macedonia (I think from Scarlet).
