Hello all, 
I'd be very grateful if someone could ID this for me... thanks :)

    Is that all one variety of plant or are the twining stems something separate?
    And are the blue flowers anything to do with either of them or have they just been blown there on the breeze?

    The larger leaves look a bit like Centaurea Montana ... the perennial cornflower, but that doesn’t have twining stems. It does have blue flowers but they don’t look like that.

    Sorry its not very clear looking at the pic, the blue flowers have fallen off a borage plant, the smaller leaves are an annual climber (thunbergia?)growing through everything and there is a perennial corn flower next to it but it is a separate plant, the corn flower has narrower leaves?  it just seems to have popped up there and I wondered if it was a weed......

    The fallen flowers look like salvia (some of my taller ones have flowers that colour). The bigger leaves and hairy stalks could be several things. My first thoughts were echinacea or rudbeckia but could be centaurea like dove said. The tiny stems and pointy leaves look like some kind of convolvulus, probably bindweed.

    Another thought is Hesperis matronalis ... do you have any elsewhere in the garden ... that self-seeds all over the place.
