Are these Nigella seedlings?

I planted some Nigellas last year for the first time ever, and now these have popped up near where they were. At first I thought they must be weeds so pulled a number up but then remembered the Nigellas. Currently about 5-10cm high. In excellent health and popped up in loads of places. I'm in London so the garden is quite warm I think (narrow SE facing)

    Yes. I think so. Especially if they are popping up all over the place
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    I am sure they are.
    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.

    Once they have flowered, leave them to self seed and you will never be free of the things. They are a joy to grow and the seed pods are wonderful in dried flower arrangements.

    Great! Thank you! They will have to be moved but thrilled to have some new ones this year as I was going to try sowing them from seed!
