I saw something very similar all over the sand in the walk through to the beach at Harlech. I had never seen them there before, but it has always been later in the year when we went. Very short growing, yellow flowered rose. I was amazed it could grow in what are virtually sand dunes.

Lovely dog matty. I hope she settles in well and the cats dont  terrorise her.

I am watching Mr T screwing artificial plants to someone elses house wall, by drilling holes in it. While its all very laudable, if I was the neighbour, I would be out there telling him to leave my house wall alone.

Is it an oriental poppy? if so after flowering, cut it down and move it with a good size root ball and water it in well.

I would cut the black tie wrap off the cane. It will damage the trunk. Use a proper tree tie that can be loosened off if it still needs support.

Looks like a fastigiate yew. There are some Yews that will grow as a column.

What is this plant?

I think its a native orchid, possibly the pyramid orchid, but a close up of the flower head in focus would help.

I have it growing by the pond in a boggy bed. It stays put.

Nothing to worry about as far as I am concerned. The bees love it. Dragonflies perch on it.
