Bluebells as a table centrepiece

Garden Forget-me-nots are really just the native Wood Forget-me-not, and are easy to obtain as bedding plants for spring. Or blue Aquilegias? Also native, and have strong stems that stand up well.

That sounds like me - I never seem to actually sit on my garden chairs and benches! Hope you get to have a rest in your lovely new low-maintenance garden before too long!

Infinity garden

Perhaps in the shape of the infinity symbol? Doesn't seem very practical though.

Pretty flower - what is it please?

Don't fancy that much, it smells disgusting!

Mystery plant

It's a Figwort. I think it's Water Figwort, Scrophularia auriculata, by the winged stem. Just pull it out before it goes to seed.

Mystery Plant arrived in my garden

It's Black Nightshade (Solanum nigra). The berries are poisonous, like most of the potato family. Pull it out when young, it's quite tough when mature.

It's a mystery ....

Coriander looks a much better bet!

The two types of leaf remind me of Burnet Saxifrage, but the flowers are different. Fairly sure it's a member of the Apiaceae.

Tree id please

Possibly a cherry of some kind?

ID please
