It is yes , Spirea douglasii,

I couldn't bring the name up to the front of the brain

I've yet to find a spirea that pleases me. Not that I've looked very hard

I've got a new butterfly

Hi Phiilppa, it's an achillea. No particular variety, probably a seedling and not far off the wild. I can still see a remnant of the yellow in there though

The black insect is really very small Fairy. The butterfly is small, not much more than common blue size

Not quite KEF

 I know what it isn't  

Though it does look familiar. When this was first posted someone suggested cuttings of hydrangea. It does look more like a pair of cuttings than a seedling to me.

DW, (I can't call you Dimwit)

If you can get a photo of the stems and roots of this it might help Catherine.

I've got some C.coum with very silvery round leaves. Their babies look nice in grass. But I usually rescue them and put them somewhere cyclamen safe

Some sort of spirea I think. 

pruning honeysuckle vine

It will grow back if you prune it. Cut it back to almost nothing and it will grow back. It will grow to the height it reaches naturally whatever you do. 

It won't flower through spring and all summer as well, you may get a second flush, but there isn't much that flowers all season.

they're only shallow corns, take a trowel and get them out.

Very light on wasps here as well. One nest, but well out of the way and the flight path doesn't include my kitchen.

Last year a nest in someone else's garden filled my house and garden with wasps.

Hi Ann, I'd store these cool and dry and sow them in spring. 

If you've got plenty you could try some now but then you'd have babies to get through the winter.

Mine (just one plant) are nowhere near ripe yet
