What type of seeds are these please

Hi, I bought a few packs of meadow flower seeds and started emptying them out so that my kids could scatter them. The last pack I poured on was meant to have all sorts of flower seeds but only what looks like grass seed came out! Are the long, thin seeds grass seeds please, or am I wrong?
Thanks

    The long ones do look like grass seed, but the last 4 things in the list on the packet are grasses so that's to be expected.

    Ah, I see, thanks. Looks like they just put the grasses in that packet then as all of the other seeds were from other packets.

    The ‘bents’ and ‘fescues’ are meadow grasses ... they will flower if not mown.

    I can see cornflower seeds. The small round ones are more likely to be flowers. The long ones are likely to be the grasses which are the last four on the list.

    The curly ones are calendula.

    Thanks, the non grasses are from the first 2 packs of seed that I poured onto the plate, the last packet looked very different!

    There's bound to be nigella too. Black and angular.

    Definitely poppies in there (the tiny black ones). The ones with the tufty bits on the end look familiar too but I can't quite place them.
