the first pic the flowers are grouped together on thin round stems the flower buds are "packed" close together

the second pic the stems are velvety and pistachio green. the flower duds kind of remind me of morning glories. it's like they are "twisted" when they are shut. ya know what i mean?

The 3rd looks like a painted daisy. However, I cannot find a pic of one in lavender to confirm.

Any friend of lychnis is a friend of mine - I've seen 'em too - hoping to see them here.

That top posey - I think it's one that's growing everywhere right now - there's a stand of them out front where I've been transplanting weeds - they have wee purple flowers and look like they're about to sing - lovelies, lovelies.

I'll keep 'em.
