    ...Honesty - Lunaria annua... a very pretty wild flower...

     

    actually I should correct that, as it was originally a garden flower but 'escaped' into the wild, apparently...image

    Thanks Salinoimage, feel a tad stupid but also happy as I'm growing this from seed as we speak, I only really know the plant from it's seed pods

    It's a biennial, so if you sow it one year it will flower the next, so Aliesh you should get some white ones next year.
