Honesty, known for it’s translucent, paperlike seed  discs in autumntime and it’s enchanting pink flowers in the spring.

It is said that it’s presence in gardens reflects the integrity of the gardener.

It likes to grow on banksides, in gardens and on meadow fringes.

    My mother gave me some Honesty seeds thirty years ago when we moved into our house,
    -delicate when dry, particularly good for christmas decorations, paper layers hold the seeds and can be peeled apart.I have replanted seeds ever since. Along with nasturtium seeds she sent me at the same time they are a constant reminder of my mother.
    I listened to your “Ramblings” appearance this morning with Clare Balding. I spent a week last summer in Avebury walking the tracks around there, it lived up to my expectations of the ancient routes. Good luck.
