Hi, new to the forums, could anyone help identify plant 1 (two pictures) an extremely overgrown bush and plant 2 which I think might just be a weed?

    Welcome to the forum, kd.  Bottom picture looks to me like a Japanese anemone, a popular garden plant with attractive pink or white flowers.  Some people regret planting it because it spreads itself around and is difficult to get rid of.

    Could it be a raspberry?

    I agree with Anemone.  Not sure what the shrub is though. Have you seen it in flower

    Thanks so much! I haven't seen the shrub flower, it loses it's leaves in Feb and new shoots appear in April if that helps.

    If you crush the leaves are they a bit lemony?
    Does it get little pale lilac flowers that smell sweet too?

    Have a look at Aloysia or Lippia , not sure what it is called these days officially.

    Edit sorry just seen you said no idea on flower :D

    The first photo of the shrub, it looks like a really overgrown Spiraea Arguta. They may not flower if not pruned back after flowering each year around late spring time.
