The first one I thought was a honeysuckle but after a trip to the garden centre I am not 100% sure,
The second one I think is some kind of wild allium but it doesn't smell of gralic when you touch it. The stem is round and not triangular (I pass on my way to work something similar to this but it is white with a triangular stem.)

Thought this might be easier to use than the links above. Can you edit posts?
You should be able to edit your post just after you submit it. You should see 'quote' and 'edit' buttons at bottom right. I think your first one looks like honeysuckle - what did you see at the GC that changed your mind?
I have no idea if this helps you if your plant isn't a wildflower, but I found this great site the other day when looking for the name of toadflax...http://wildflowerfinder.org.uk/
Lord that site is massive. Tried to use it on my phone. Not a good idea. Thanks for the tip. I'll have a look tonight.
I know - it's very extensive! Very good too
Could the second one be a allium cowanii but pink?
I still don't understand how to search on it.
I think you just select the aspects/features of the plant you know - ie: shape of leaf/flower/where it lives etc and it can be very detailed or not, depending on how much info you already have...I only used it once to find the name for Toadflax and it was pretty accurate.
I think you are right Figrat. Checked a similar plant on my way to work and if you crush the stem it smells garlicy. Is this plant invasive or is that the wild garlic?
