I saw that too Geoff, and thought the same thing. I'm pretty sure it is sweet william, and I'm beginning to think that the first one is willow herb as muddyfork says, although I'd prefer it to be phlox!

What's the weather like in your area?

Could this be the second consecutive day with no rain??? Fingers crossed! Still a bit chilly with a Simpsons sky, but 20ºC forecast for later.

Hi figrat, I garden in a rural area, and there are lots of things in the garden which I've seen in the surrounding countryside. I haven't seen any valerian though. Will gladly pull one up this weekend and take a photo of the root.

I've just checked back on the beeb board - it was Kate1123. We could start another parallel thread "mystery identifiers of mystery plants"

There's never been any penstemon in the garden as far as I know. There's definitely more of the first one than the second. I'd just like to be sure before I ruthlessly rip it all out that I'm not getting rid of something I might like.

As was rightly suggested Yvieh, it must have self-seeded from the one I planted last year - the flowers on that one are much bluer (that doesn't look right) than this one though. If this one self-seeds I suppose the flowers will be different again

Hmmm, interesting suggestions. I suppose I could wait until it flowers and then get back to you!

Hi Kate. There was one small sweet William in the garden when we moved in 6 years ago. It flowered for two years then disappeared. Could the seeds have lain dormant for so long?

Hi folks! Not taken many photos in April due to horrendous weather conditions. Managed to take this at the weekend. It's the 'mystery' aquilegia which I think Yvie and/or Lilylouise identified:

And some rather bedraggled bearded irises:

 Hopefully the weather will continue to improve, and things will actually start growing!!

These two plants are popping up in various places in my garden. Can anyone tell me what they are?
