I was admiring our lawn at tea time. I like the way the white clover blends in with the little purple Prunella vulgaris, self heal. The bees agreed with me

I have sympathy Runnybeak. But strimming with bare legs? Is that sensible. It's not just giant hogweed that can cause damage.

Be aware, use common sense and it won't attack you. 

Shield bugs - do we like?

Conifer seedling, probaly a pine as Bob suggests. Though I was surprised when growing conifers from seed just how many started off looking like that.

The seeds are inside the spines, down at the bottom (if they're still there), if the heads were ripe when you picked them they will have dropped some to germinate by themselves.

If you put the whole head in a bird feeder the birds may not be able to get into the seeds. I like to leave them on the plant and watch the goldfinches take them

Campanula poscharskyana

ID orange thistle-like flowers

I think it depends on your gardening style and your soil

Not one to set loose with the alpines but a lovely in the right company. I have some that flowers with a white hemerocallis when they get the timing right. If it exceeds its bounds it goes into cut grass and gets beheaded like all the other extras.

I've got some in long grass as well.
