Shoo fly plant. Nicandra physlaodes. An annual which will self seed around.

What is my plant please

Helichrysum 'Ruby Cluster is the most likely.

Anyone know these plants?

Pictures would be useful. If they will not load then try reducing them in size.

Digger bees

We do everything in our power to encourage these in our garden. This year we had a nest of bees going into our woodshed through a hole in the side. This meant that we could not use the big wood axe which was next to their nest. So be it. They are more useful than the axe.

Shame on anyone who kills anything without good reason. We have a huge, like 2 feet across wasps nest in our loft. They will disappear soon after the first frost. They can stop there until then. they are not coming into the house and they do more good than harm.

And before anyone says anything, my wife, who is very allergic to stings, agrees.

Plants we wish they'd stop selling.

Fallopia baldschuanica aka Russian Vine. Should be on the list with Japanese knotweed.

Mind I would also add Roses to the list, but that is just me who detests the things.
