Okay, I thought I was getting the hang of this! The more I learn, the more I realize I have so much to learn LOL! I 'thought' these were 'baby' seedum(s?) but they're obviously not. Any ideas? They've got little purple flowers blossoming...and there's a zillion of em!

Looks like raspberry on the left and I'd almost swear you have oregano.

Yep, the purple one. The pink one is some kind of butterfly weed ... think that thread went poof when the forum went down, and of course I didn't copy/paste the mystery IDs for some of those I asked about before frown

YES that's the pink one, thanks Weezie! I remembered as soon as I read the name. I'm writing it down NOW! LOL! Thanks :-)

As soon as my head either pops off or the throbbing stops, I'll get outside for a clearer pic of that purple one. Though it might be hard to do with no head if it goes that way.
