the first is Feverfew

the second probably Bird's Foot Trefoil 

I'm assuming the dead bits in the second pic are something else

Not for the faint hearted..............

Mine have arrived as well Richard, thank you. Potted up and sowed.

Stamps to come any day soon. 

Can anyone identify this lovely plant?

should do kitty but you could collect and save some to be sure. I'm not sure how hardy those annual linaria are

Thanks Dove, better already

Gardening is an ongoing process isn't it aym. Before you can blink something has become huge and swamping everything. That bamboo was poking out of the top of the eleagnus next to it and through the grass path. Now I can ignore it for another 10 years The mower will deal with the grass invaders

That's the way to look at it Fidget. I can't be worrying about it.

Even without the current damages my hands couldn't be described as well manicured.

Thanks BLT, shredding without full cover-up is a big no.

Been in the same trade, 15 years as a practice nurse. but it all seems a long time ago now.

I think it's already subsiding a bit, I expect I'll survive this one.

Thanks for all concerns expressed folks, I'm made of tough stuff

Thanks PP, there was, and still is, a huge volume of bamboo. I haven't got concerns about this, more an interest in what was responsible. Last time I had anything vaguely similar I knew it was a euphorbia what dunnit.
