First one is about 2 foot tall, and a small pink flower has just opened today:

This next one is broad leaved and has the green / red things that look like they will flower: (The tall light stem in the middle of this picture is the first pink flower above)

    Don't know about the pink one @gutties (rubbish on flowers) but the bottom one looks like sorrel?

    First one is red campion Silene dioica ... a lovely wildflower of hedgerows and woodland edges. Love it.  :smile:

    Agree the second one could be a  sorrel

    Thanks both.  I had sowed a lot of wildflower seed last May, so this must be it coming good now.
    Will be interesting to see how the pollinators is attracted to the Red Campion.
