Lemon coloured peony - I think I mentioned it in another thread but now I've forgotten the name.  Begins with an A.

Blue foliage

 Nearest I have to blue is this fescue.  It sticks out like a sore thumb where it is at the moment but it will be moved beside the other grasses once I get the rest of the intended bed dug over.  In this photo it's been battered by rain for days.  The colour is much improved after a day in the sun.

Anyone know what this is?

I'm really pleased that it's been identified as A.M.  I suspect there must be some in neighbouring gardens and a seed has strayed into mine.  I'm short of space in this small garden now but I'll dig it out of the tub and put it in a pot for a while.  How interesting that it's turned up.  I'll bear in mind all the above comments and while it grows will come up with a plan on where to eventually plant it.

Oooh ....how great this forum is for little surprises like these. 

Thank you everyone.

This seedling has popped up in a large tub.  Does anyone know what it is please?  Many thanks.

Great Hostas in all the photos.  Hostafan - you are really in hosta heaven there.  It's fabulous.  I have a couple including the one in this photo which is in the shade, but I don't know what it's called.  When I bought it a few years ago it was only labelled 'Hosta'!  Do you know which it is?   Many thanks.

 

What's this??

Looks a really healthy geranium you have Daniel and as said above, a good one for a division or two I think.

Sara I love your phygelius.  It's gorgeous.  I have a red one called 'Scarlet' something but it doesn't do too well in my garden and has never grown more than a couple of new stems.  Do you do anything special with it...and great that you get it to reflower?

Wow!  Beautiful irises.  I love the chocolate coloured one - I couldn't think of an appropriate word to describe the colour.  What is it?  It's lovely.

Horsehair worm

This was moving about in between bricks which form a tiny flower bed next to my water feature thing.

Is it a horsehair worm?  Is it a good thing to have about?

Plant ID please

Wow!  What a beautiful shape and so healthy looking.  Envious of that.
