Almost the same view, except the eucalyptus in the foreground fell over and the phormium underneath it died in the really bad frost.
If its coming up everywhere I would go with nigella. Thin them to about 6 inch apart. Last year we had someone with a carrot seedling that turned out to be cosmos. Its a good guessing game at this time of year.

Looks like a carrot seedling.
A daft baby blackbird I found in the greenhouse
No, I just stuck it through the bedroom window and slapped everything on auto. The colour lasted 15 seconds at the most. The leaves had already gone off the tree, late last year.
I think thats a bergenia. Are the leaves leathery? It should have flowers about now but that doesn't look too good.
The red barked thing looks like one of the coloured bark cornus used for winter colour. You prune it down(stool it) in Spring and then get new shoots,and bark colour for the winter.
The oak tree at the top of the garden
Once they're up they're pretty hardy. Mine will move from a frost free greenhouse to the unheated plastic polytunnel thing. They were fine last year doing that. If we have a really cold snap, cover with a bit of fleece as extra insulation.
