yes, G. nivalis 

Can anyone tell me what these 2 plants are?

they're great plants. The VB is biennial so you need to set seed early this summer for next year. I find it doesn't do well in pots, best direct sown

Ox-eye daisies and Viper's Bugloss

Cotoneaster dammeri, horizontal

They're either very variable or some have got the wrong label. I have one that stays low to the ground and one that is pushing up gradually to make a taller plant (not very tall but taller)

so if you have a pond put them in it.

I get so depressed about all the horror and fear of native wildlife

Small bush or shrub

I don't think the bush honeysuckles would suit what you're looking for. Daphne is nice, drawback, wouldn't like a lot of trimming. Sarcococca winter flowering great scent, stays fairly compact.

Choisya might be a good choice, summer flowering and trimable (and cheap)

that's a bit rash fidget.  I've still got half a load of muck sitting on the grass out the front. Must get that shifted before mowing time.

The trouble with waiting til spring on my patch is that you have to be watering them all summer to keep them alive. Can't be doing with that. If I start losing stuff I'll have to have a rethink. I'm more likely to lose plants from summer drought than all other causes combined. Even the muntjac.
