Hi
My neighbour is trying to work out what these two are so she let me take a picture for this.

In her garden, she has lots of self sown Common Hemp Nettle which she cares for, and on her lawn she found Germander Speedwell seedlings and protected them. Which is the exact behaviour I would like others to follow, as they can sometimes not be ''weeds'' but something beautiful

Also a mystery Clematis variety

2ND PIC: Germander Speedwell that was nurtured.
3rd pic: Mystery Clematis variety

    There are thousands of clematis varieties, so even with adequate info on flower size, timing of flowering, habit etc, it would be quite difficult to get an ID.
    You could try looking on the some of the specialist sites to see if there's anything similar, but it would still only be a guess.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    1. Could be...I do not have sufficient information/ knowledge to help.
    May be you do?

    Quote "The difference between the three common Flaxes, Linum perenne (Perennial Flax), Linum bienne (Pale Flax) and Linum usitatissimum (Flax) is a bit subtle relying on characters such as numbers of leaf veins and sepal sizes which are difficult to see."

    2. Not at all sure when you have 2 plants you need help with you then post a 3rd which you already know....Veronica chamaedrys......Germander Speedwell

    Or where Hemp nettle comes into the query?
    "In her garden, she has lots of self sown Common Hemp Nettle "

    Maybe best to stick to questions in a post headed... Plant id.

    3.  Agree with Fairygirl... Clematis from pic can be hard.
