Friend needs help with plant ID from new garden

1 could be a Kolkwitzia and 2 could be a Weigela, but like the others I can't see well enough. 3, I agree is phygelius and 4 is a hebe.

Please identify these flowers

They are peonies. They took ages to download. Are they big photos or is my laptop playing up?

Alan's new series

I watched the beginning and the end but not the middle. As long as the owner liked it that was OK by me, but wouldn't have been my first choice. Glad she was happy.

Congratulations Lily Pilly. Aren't we lucky! When is Star Gaze Lily's due? My new grandson is Henri.

I've been picking raspberries, but it's got to dark to see properly. Bumper crop this year. Also picked blackcurrants to make into cordial tomorrow. Have made redcurrant cordial, lovely on a hot day.

P. Pam, new mothers are kept in hospital in France for 3 - 4 days. They like the milk to come through and baby to start putting on weight before going home. They have breast feeding nurses to help and breast feeding is encouraged. My daughters and DILs have been happy with this. DIL should go home tomorrow evening or Friday. It's her 2nd baby. My son is working (dentist) but they have a child minder and her parents are staying. We've just been to visit. Baby is much less crumpled looking than he was on Monday! The hospital photographer came.

Morning all. Warm and sunny.

Going shopping, lunch at Wok place then visiting DIL and new baby in hospital.

DD you didn't say, would you like chocolate cake for Sunday? I still have your plastic cake box.

Wow, Joybell that's a huge transformation too.

Perhaps Mr T. asked permission first.

I expect Pippin is feeling very relieved.

I've weeded the long border, watered the veggie garden and made redcurrant cordial today.
