    Are you sure what you have isn't "love in a puff" not love in a mist

    no, they're solid black seeds and not what i would call tiny at all.

    to me tiny seeds are those like what comes from the annual poppies or the pinks we have that wander around.

    Those black seeds with white faces look like puffin heads. Makes me want to paint little eyes on them.

    The seeds may be Nigella.
    This is an old type of Love in the mist, I now have this self sowing in my yard....only took three years.
    The seeds are small, dull black and to me them taste like flowers smell. Great sprinkled over bread before baking.
    I use mine in all sorts of different things from curries to soups ad stews in balance with other secret ingredients of course.

    I cant even remember where I first learnt about this plant, but at the time was looking for ways to grow herbs and spices in my garden. I had to find things that would actually grow here to replace things that just wouldnt. One example is peppercorns. Not ever going to grow here even if i could find viable seed, so the native plant Horopito was chosen- the leaves have a similar taste.
