What is this weed?

Cherry sucker? I've got lots, I just keep cutting, pulling or mowing. I can't use weedkiller as I don't want to damage the original trees.

Orchid

I've got one that I've had for 23 years. It has never been repotted, although I do feed it occasionally with orchid food. Some years it doesn't produce a flower spike, other years I might get 2 or 3. Amazing is right!

Plants IDs please!

Yes, Jasminum beesiana?

Plants IDs please!

Don't think the first one is a wild flower, at least not one I've seen. The second one is Oxalis tetraphylla.

I did see this and agreed with Corncockle, but couldn't explain the white fluffy bits. The plant is very hairy, has something killed a bird and the feathers have been trapped on  the buds? Bit of a weak theory! Or are we being teased?

Plant ID please

No, that doesn't have toothed leaves. Thinking!

BARNSDALE GARDEN TRIP.

I'd love to come, always an exciting place to visit. Could do Thursday 19th in the afternoon, but not the Friday (going to Coton Manor, another great garden). The following weekend (21st/22nd) is also OK.

I'm told that the moth feeds mainly at night on plants such as Honeysuckle, taking the nectar as a source of sugars for energy. I'm learning such a lot from this topic!

Plant ID for wildflower

I think it is Ajuga reptans, Bugle. 

Welcome addition?

I think it's Salsify, Tragopogon porrifolius. Pretty flower, edible roots.
