Jam jar flowers

I only had sleet to deal with so not as courageous as Pansyface

I didn't pick any Molly flowers either, though there are many. Nor the white one where there are only 2

Take your secateurs in and get a cutting from the variegated part

 they do take up a fair bit of space against a very short flowering season

I can't ID the variety but the two colours could be due to reversion, a common occurrence with variegated plants, or infiltration from another

WillDB, you mentioned the orange /red colours last year. I shall have seed from a red with rather small flowers and a blotchy orange, (the offspring of the red), though you could end up with yellow flowers from either of them. 

I have a seedling from one of Landgirl's paeonies as well, though not a tree paeony.

Exciting isn't it.

Eranthis cilicica (one of the Winter Aconites)

The petals are falling off, the seed pods are forming in the middle, those green stand up bits. You can see the gone over droopy male bits in the front flower. It will be a while before they're ripe

Do choisya works well as a hedge/screen?

I agree with Will. If you ave the sideways space it makes a nice low-level screen. but loses all its charm and most of its flowers if clipped.

Skimmia Japonica

It wouldn't stop them having a virus if they've got one  but don't know what the diagnosis is based on.

The only really healthy looking skimmias I've seen are in acid soil but there's not much of that round here so I usually see yellowing ones.
