This pretty flower is seemingly growing wild near me. Wondered what it is!
I've had a suggestion of penstemon, but the flowers look more like antirhinum. The flowers are tiny - 1cm high by 0.5cm across.

Thanks all for your responses! That's been on my mind for some time so very grateful.
I did some google searches on the above and I think it is the prunus - the buds and leaves weren't quite right for Deutzia.
Now I know what it is I might treat myself to one...

I saw this plant in someone's garden while out walking the other day. It looks like a white version of Kerria Pleniflora but when I've googled this it doesn't seem to exist.
Does anyone know what it is?

I've seen this plant in a garden in my neighbourhood (London) - it's about 10 feet tall, 6 feet wide and has woody stems so I assume is a shrub.
Has beautiful blue/green foliage which goes to mauve at the tips, have zoomed in on the image so you can see that the foliage goes into tiny sort of feathered leaves.
Would love to know what this is!

Thanks so much for all the replies!
I'm pretty sure it is cats - there is quite a large gang of them round here and they seem to have picked my garden for fighting in...I can hear them in the evening.
Think I'll get some more wire mesh/supports round them and see if I can stake it in quite deep. Was avoiding this due to a tight budget but definitely better than the heartache of lost plants!
Very glad to hear the stories of dahlias that have returned after damage though, so will persevere with these I think as they're really healthy otherwise.
@Verdun like your ideas - might pop a pot in the gap for now with some stuff in to give it a bit of colour then I can move it if I do get anything growing back!

Hello Gardeners' World forum
I have (or had may be more appropriate) a beautiful patch of dahlias that I've grown from the tubers this year in my back garden. An animal got in last night and has mown down three of them - two have about one live shoot remaining, on the third they are all broken.
I have a rather large empty patch in the border now and would quite like to have something in it!
Should I just leave the tuber where it is and hope it sprouts again? Is there any hope for shoots that are partially broken but still attached?
Also any tips for keeping cats out of the garden/beds gratefully received!
