Fishy, no flat cap, etc. Just 2 inches short of you  (happy with that as I wanted to be the height of a famous heavyweight boxer when at school)   and, eerily,  some of the posters are fairly accurate.  Have to re read the posts but he is an outdoor guy, pipe smoker and a ....hey....a fisherman.  Prob too a polite, well mannered guy

Fairy?  Strong, glowing tan, determined, small and outspoken? perhaps an expletive or two

Astrantia star of billion is excellent.  For summer lomg flowering and very tall flowers check out jumble hole.  Love this one.

Hey!  Melancholy gentleman?  For description check out my latest thread 

Argentea not a favourite of mine

Lily of the  valley?  Yes, once established it will ruin local plantIngs.

Had a phone call from local authority re my comments about the care home my mum's in.  A large number of changes from manager, her deputy, to way care is presented have been adopted.  I have noticed this past week or more that standards are so much better.  I said that all carers should have reasonable training re dementia and that on admission to a home the family should have a meeting with the care home to,discuss what happens,,what we should expect, etc.  This too is now in place.

Saw my mum today....she seems happy and content but a nearby residential home....superb.....is a possibility for her.  Still unreal to talk to my mum now ...6 months ago she was sharp and clear thinking.

No Dove is an "in charge", highly competent, very kind, caring and easily given to humour.  She was part,of,the Monty python team 

Ginglygangly?  Skinny and very very tall.  Not too bothered by what people  may think?  

Rose of Sharon,Hypericum androsaemum

This hypericum produces suckers and these can be removed and grown on.  I see it as a cross between calycinum and the shrubby types.  Never grown this one though simply because it has an element of being invasive

I would dig it up now and check out the root system.  Maybe pull it apart or sever suckers.  Cut back the bush to ground level or a little above.  Hypericums usually flower on current season's wood so I would expect this to be the same. i really don't think you will lose or damage it Alan

KEF I imagine to be serious with a cheeky twist, someone with an authorative air.  Cannot tell sizes of women.

Digger?  Wiry, lean and hard working?  

Beaus mum?  A dog lover. Young....should still be at school 

Lily......kind, mature laid back?

However, I await with mischievous curiosity the comments about how we possibly all are.  Have I stirred a hornets' nest here ?
