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.
I connected to the photobucket llnk using cut and paste in the browser.

The first one looks like a senecio, now called brachyglottis. yellow daisy type flowerered shrub.
2nd one a variegated pieris.
3rd one looks like umbrella papyrus aka Cyperus alternifolius
