Aha, some googling has come up with this

It looks as if it's something along those lines - it says that sparrows like eating the flowers so you'd better top up the bird table to distract them

ID please

The plants on the left (large leaves) look like the bedding-type nicotianas.

The one with the yellow flowers and succulent-type leaves I don't recall seeing before, but someone will know them

Good morning Bekkie and any/everyone else who isn't sleeping off smiley exhaustion!!!

Sunshine and blue skies today - nothing urgent needs doing in the garden today apart from dead heading some roses, so .............. we thought we might go to the seaside!!!

It's been a busy day in this part of Norfolk. Hope Snoodle's part of Norfolk enjoyed a lovely birthday party.

Now, although I haven't got a yawning smiley, Dove is going to doze - see you in the morning folks - sweet dreams everyone

That sneaks in along the back of the Shady Bank and tries to hide behind the bases of the clematis and honeysuckles Grrrrr

Bee Alert ! Your lotty needs lerts !

Bees as individuals aren't long-lived creatures. If there'd been a wild bees's nest in the tree then a hundred dead bees on the ground below it would be quite normal.

I agree that close planting will keep most weeds away - you should see my Shady Bank - talk about hugger mugger! - but I find that couch grass will wangle and weave it's way in anywhere, even if there's no light and no space!
