When things grow you feel good. One is always planning for the future with gardening, which means there will be a future. Eating your produce with a vase of flowers that you grew on the table is very satisfying.

I agree with Verdun. Just lavender would look best on it's own. Could the hedge be an escallonia?

KEF, funny that, everytime I'm in the UK I put on 2 or 3 pounds. Love real ale and sticky toffee pudding and banoffee pie. Don't have any of that, or beamy old pubs in France.

Looks like fat hen. It grows in my veg garden. It's a weed, but I think it's edible. Can't see peas.

What is this bee attracting plant?

Repens is the spreading low growing one, this is over 5 foot so is probably a taller variety.

Can you identify this plant and is it ill/deficient?

Magnolia Leonard Messel is OK with alkali soil. It's not as bad as it is with azaleas. You could try seqestrene.

If it's ragwort it's much smaller than I thought from the photo. Yellow daisy flowers, pretty but lethal. Another Google pic.
