    1) is Papaver cambricum (welsh poppy)
    2) Euphorbia (not sure which one)
    3) looks like Forsythia
    4) is Choisya ternata I think
    5) ?
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Thank you! I’m making an Online scrap book of all the plants so I know what I’ve got!

    Good idea!  :)
    If the Choisya is more yellow than green it is probably the cultivar 'Sundance'.

    5., is a Spirea.
    I think the Euphorbia is Blackbird.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
  • Thank you. Can I just check that this is welsh poppy too? 

  • And is this a geranium of some sort? 

    I have a beuatiful well stocked garden which I inherited when we bought the house. After two years of just pruning and weeding I want to learn a bit more!

    The latter looks like some sort of anemone, probably Anemone blanda.

    Yes, it is a Welsh Poppy.
    2nd. one looks like Winter Aconite to me.

    Yes, agree with Puckdoc, the second photo looks like Eranthis Hyemalis.
