|Yes, you did! what great photos! I love them all and I can hardly wait to see the buds open too. I really like the detail in the one with Endowed with Beauty.|
the first unknown I think is cheiranthus or Siberian Wallflower. Very fragrant? Easily reseeds without being invasive. Early bloomer. I'm not sure what the second one is. Maybe if I could see the leaves? Could be a Cape Daisy but not sure.
I really like that Tiny Double You!

|Thanks, who would have ever thought Siberian Wallflower would grow in Alabama? I check for fragrance tomorrow. I'll get some photos of the other plant with the leaves also.|

| It's a cute little flower. Doesn't work well in my bouquets though, the color seems to clash with everything! |
There's several daisy like flowers so I'm not sure I'll be able to identify exactly but there's Venidium, osteospermum and cape daisy. Probably more too.

|Maybe I have the seed packet still, and that should help narrow it down. I'll check tomorrow.|

|That could help!|

|Well, it was a packet of mixed seeds, probably at least 20 different things it that one pack.|

|Does it list the plants on the package? If not, we'll probably never know for sure.|
May 9, 2015 9:01 PM CST
|Yes, they are all listed if I can find the packet.|

|Oh, I misunderstood. I thought you had the packet in front of you!|

|The first mystery flower looks like a wall flower to me or some odd color of honesty (lunaria)? The second one is a Calendula (Pot Marigold), which is a winter hardy annual in my neck of the woods and reseeds everywhere it can.... Edible and is also medicinal...a tea from the flowers is applied to skin and is soothing for sunburn and rashes and you can even use it to soothe tired eyes (so they say). Save the seeds from the Calendula (they look like little C shaped dried up caterpillars) and you can toss them anywhere late in the fall and they'll come up in next spring. |
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
