Either cyclamen hederafolium or cyclamen coum - the first will flower in the late summer/autumn, before they grow their beautiful frosted leaves.  The second will flower in the very early spring, around the same time as snowdrops.  

Lucky you - we found the same when we moved into this garden - beautiful!  I was thrilled as they were our first 'discovery' here and I'd always wanted a garden with cyclamen in it. 

I wonder whether you have the white or the pink, or some of each?  Those huge 'corms' are very old - they start off quite tiny and get bigger and bigger each year - we have some like dinner plates.

It sounds as if you have a lovely garden. 

Worried this is Japanese Knotweed!

Definitely not Japanese Knotweed 

Hydrangea flower heads

I leave them on, they turn wonderful colours as they fade into the autumn - then in the winter they protect the buds beneath them from the frost.  I remove them in the spring. 

I.D. Required please

I can't see any flowers on the plant in question - I can see through the plant to some flowers in the beds behind it. 

There are buds at the top tips of the plant.

Don't think it's likely to be bumble bees as they don't swarm - this sounds very like a swarm of honey bees. 

I.D. Required please

Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints.......and I can't remember the rest. Something about memories.
