Japanese anemone

Harmless little toadstools - they'll disappear when the weather dries up a bit.  

Brambles, or possibly raspberry suckers.

I pick half the crop now and make jam.  The ones I leave on the bush to ripen and we have them in tarts, crumbles or even just gently stewed with yoghurt for breakfast.  Lush!!!

Rozanne - I got fed up with mine taking over the world so cut it back hard and moved it to a spot that gets full sun all day and that seems to have calmed it down and its now a lot less lax and floppy and looks great.

See original post

 My Rozanne wandered over and through the other plants in the border - I did as you did Obelixx - I dug it up early this spring, as soon as it appeared, split it into three and potted it for a while to get it going, then planted them out in the new sunny bed - it's much happier now it has more sunshine and is flowering more and looks more like the illustrations - neat mounds of foliage and colour, not leggy and lanky any more 

Low growing flowers for lawn alternative

That sounds more like a flower bed - it'll need the same sort of maintenance - weeding, hoeing, dividing, mulching etc.
