I agree with Kitty 2.


If you look carefully you can see a see multiheaded flower going to seed .


This would suggest it is Verbena rather than Nemesia, Gypsophila,Geranium or  creeping Phlox.

Definitely Mulberry...Morus.


A very handsome young tree...it may not have been old enough to produce the fruits before.


Fruits are edible.


This is what the  female flowers look like..

Yes ...very common for them to do this.


Completely normal.

Shrub id & when to prune, please

Agree Cotoneaster sp.


Maybe a gift from the birds?


Agree with Hostafan not C. Horizontalis..which has tiny leaves and is creepingand prostate.


This one is upright.


Very hard to id Cotoneasters accurately as they cross pollinate to produce hybrids.... the seeds are then dropped by the birds

what are these two shrubs?

1 and 2.. Look like very healthy evergreen, small leaved Azalea.


Like all evergreens the leaves will eventually die and drop off...which is what the red leaves are doing.


All perfectly normal.

The hairs on the leaves  of Viburnum rhytidophyllum can cause problems

Help with ID please

AngieR...Please can you add clear close up of the flowers.


Very tall to be Veronica.


If Hebe leaves would be opposite...which I don't think these are.
