SGL, have a look here.
I pull oaks seedlings. I find if I just chop the top off they tend to reappear in the border. Ones in the lawn don't survive repeated mowing.
I'm glad your mum is getting better, verdun.
It's grey here, so I'm still under the duvet. I'm debating whether to get up and make porridge. New herb bed to make today before it rains.
If they're big ones they are queens waking from hibernation. Just put them outside preferably near a source of nectar.
If you had a nest inside there would be lots of little ones, but bumble bees like to nest in old mouse nests and other nice holes outside.
Ist one looks like a hardy geranium. 2nd one looks like a fern.
It looks like the standard Lithodora diffusa "Heavenly blue"
There is a new one around that has a blue and white star like flower.
It does look in a bad way. They don't like the rosettes getting too wet, so water around it. The are good sticking out of the gaps in dry stone walls. If the rosettes get too wet in winter they will rot off.
Bypass has two blades that pass each other like scissors.
Anvil has a blade that cuts on to a hard surface, Like a knife on a board.
As Bob, says, not enough light or too much heat will make them lanky. Repot into next size pot and bury the stem well. It will grow additional roots from the stem, but make sure it has enough light.
