I love hearing owls at night. We put up an owl box years ago in the hope that some would come and live here, nothing yet

youtube has lots of recordings of bird call. Have a listen.

Start with tawny and barn are the most common here

I don't like them, I've seen them in the GCs.

Real foxgloves are much nicer

 Yes Lou

It's the stems of the first one that give it away as a geranium to me. I think it's probably G. endressii.

and the second look like lamiums, L album, and in flower Lamium purpureum.

white and red dead nettle.

There's a very easy test for nettle

Hi DYL, that will keep you busy

Pic 2 is a hardy geranium, probably a pink one

in pic 3, the pink flowers are red deadnettle and there's another member of the same family there, might be white deadnettle.

4 i can see chick weed, goose grass and ground ivy, prolific seeders but easy to remove

5 looks like another hardy geranium but not the same one.

Be careful when you start clearing, you may find bits of other, more interesting, stuff.

I spend nothing on chemicals. I like my insects, the balance achieved by leaving them alone has worked well for me over the years
