my gut feeling was, and still is, not HF. I think you need to post this on a fungi ID site if you have concerns re HF. There are hundreds of different species of fungi springing up on tree stumps all over the country at this time of year, most are beneficial, part of the natural process of decay.
I think echium is right.
I wonder what happened to the the labeled plants. I can see some acanthus in there as well.
Might just be the edge of the Melanoselinum peeping in at the bottom. No Agrimonia that I can see
Evergreens are always dead looking on the inside when you pull them open.Take your hand away and let us see what the bush looks like
But don't worry too much. HF isn't the end of the world, we have it here and it hasn't wiped out the garden. Two willows (the beginning) and a clematis in about 10 years. It tends to go for compromised plants, weak, too dry, otherwise unhealthy. Keep your plants healthy and grow what is suitable for your soil and conditions.
That's a summer house (or something)
Where do you keep the garden tools?
There are some great plants to be had.
and then there those pink and white variegated things (many)
A matter of taste
or lack of it
the second is Alliaria petiolata, Jack by the Hedge and many other names. Orange Tip larvae food
The first does look like a geum and could be the dreaded Geum urbanum if you didn't plant it. I can't remember the common name for that.

If you have space and it's a nice looking tree keep it for the bird food as NewBoy suggests. Occasionally a good apple comes from seed and a new variety is created, but mostly nothing much of quality for human consumption.
I like 'Sam's Early Compost'
There will still be hundreds in the ground
all those white and pink things are sick looking to me, not enough chlorophyll and liable to burn round edges in anything other than moist, still, shady, mild situations.
Plastic toys, I don't like those either
