 Hello everyone, certainly looks like it is going to be a good weekend for gardening! Does anyone have any idea what this little beauty is?

...there seems to be more than one plant going on there.. but if you mean the one with red leaves, I think it's Nandina domestica, of which the best clone, supposedly, is called 'firepower'...

...others might have a different idea...

Not sure the leaf shape is right for Nadina. Wonder if it might be a Leucothoe.

I don't grow either so I can't go and check.

The other maybe Centaurea montana,

The red leaved plant looks like Chinese Witch Hazel- Loropetalum Chinensis
