Fraid not Nut...its a good old common allium although I can't remember the variety. It gets very leafy early spring and yellow star shaped flowers

 The bulbs smell of onion and its very vigorous!

 

Sorry for late reply...I worked a very early shift today and just didn't have the energy to think much so I slapped these up instead!

Post dinner, I'm a little more compos mentis  so, yes, they are very arty.

I also cheated, since these are from previous years...my garden is mostly still catching up and as stated, I didn't have the energy to take photos which mostly means getting down on all fours and into peculiar angles!

I paint in oils, so these are my stock of flower forms and light that I use in my paintings  Imagine large versions of these hanging on your walls and there you go...not just a pretty face.

Oh go on then, one more just because we can...

Sounds like a plan and welcome to the forums

And Finally, Unidentified shrub 3

I found this advice:

Common problems

Pittosporum tenuifolium is susceptible to leaf spot and powdery mildew infections.

It may also suffer from infestations of pittosporum sucker, aphids or cushion scale. If grown indoors the two-spotted spider mite can be a problem.

Very cold temperatures and frost can damage, or even kill, the plant.

 

Yours looks to be very much alive but perhaps in need of a little TLC

This is the flower of Pittosporum tenuifolium nigricans

This one's a bit tricky isn't it?

I initially thought of Eleagnus except the flower is wrong, if the flower belongs to it

 

It could be Pittosporum
