Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Pretty wild in North  Cambs as well. I haven't even taken last night's veg peelings to the compost heap yet. I did fill the bird feeders though

There's a stick (poplar) standing upright, impaled in our lawn. I didn't fancy one impaled in my head. Calming a little now and will probably venture forth, at least for a look if not for working

Yes Ribes sanguineum is flowering currant

What the hellebores is going on?

It wasn't blackspot Verdun. It was a distorted look, like you get when some types of weedkillers have been used, I don't use them and there's no way they could get a dose from anyone else. It was at, or even before, flowering time. I chucked all the affected ones.

All well this year except for one plant that looks a bit iffy

They're a bit blurry when enlarged (not that I am in a position to comment on your photography )

Shrubs can often be IDd from stems and buds with a clear photo

Hi Mimi

I use chrome, that's OK but I always reduce my pics to post on here. I post 30% of what my camera produces. 1000 pixels or less in each direction seems to work. I hope I've got the numbers right, I'm no IT person

I can't see anything there that looks like HF. But that's not a no. I have HF but the only time I thought I found the bootlaces was nowhere near the HF trees and all is still healthy there. 

Leaves are now through. So what is this plant/tree?

Dunno yet

Cherries have quite big seeds (you know what they look like) birds eat cherries, seeds emerge from nether regions Any way that could happen in your seeding arrangements?
