Help, please?

These seedlings are growing away happily on my windowsill. The label is missing (I think David had something to do with that!). Could someone possibly put me out of my misery and tell me what they are, please?  

One of my Auriculas have finally opened after a long spell of neglect. Yay!

That Auricula is lovely, Jacinta, and I wouldn't be great at identifying seedlings. I'll leave it to those who know more than me on the subject.

Nasturtiums??? Lovely Auricula

Definitely not Nasturtiums, Peter. They self-seed outside freely.

Patience, woman! Let them get their second leaves!!!! To me most seedlings look like baby cabbages at that stage :-) Maybe Davey has the label in his pocket?

Again, Jacinta, It's beyond me. As I mentioned the best thing is to wait until it has grown.

I agree, they're too small to know. They look like Speedwell to me but I'm sure you didn't sow that!
