    3. I think these are 'alpines' and look like two different plants in the same pot....these also seems to be a self seeded flower (no ID reqd for that) on the left hand side.

    4....and finally... This yellow flower has popped up next a fuschia - the fuschia was a trailing variety and taken from a hanging basket last year, but the basket didn't have any yellow flowers like this!

    I think I've been a bit blessed with flowers just 'appearing' this year - triplet and day lilies - and now this thing!

    First one is agapanthus, second one looks like cotoneaster (franchetii perhaps). Fourth looks like antirrhinum (snapdragon).

    I'd agree with Anni. The snapdragons may not survive winter, depending on where you are.
    I can't see No3 clearly enogh, but they look like  quite common sedums/saxifrages. They dont need much care, so very useful for pots  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    I think we're usually quite mild down here on the UK south coast, so hopefully the snapdragons will survive! As for the alpines, do these make it any clearer?

    The yellow Sedum is probably Sedum Lemon Carpet, the other one is Sedum Pachyclados, lovely, and mildly invasive but easy to pull out.

    The one with the yellow flowers are probably Sedum Reflexum.
