Have found a few random things in the garden.  Could I have some help to identify them to see if they stay or go.  Thanks. 

1) A bluebell is the long leaves but what is the frilly looking leaf ? 



2) Is this a geranium offshoot or a weed?  Found them in a few places that made me think not a geranium after all.


3) Any idea what this is, looks like some sort of rose, but didn't flower last year ? Guess it may need some food...



Thank you.

    .Might be Anemone blanda

    2, Looks familiar but........       maybe a potentilla, not part of the geranium in the photo.

    3 a rose, something like Canary Bird maybe

    I think number 3 is canary bird as nutcutlet says, but there is a red 'version' and I can't remember it's name.

    No. 2 is a creeping buttercup. I agree with Nut about the anemone in the first pic.

    Or the first one could be an anemone or a ragged robin. Lovely wild flower with pink flowers.

    The second one on the right is a perennial geranium, should know the name,Wallace something, too late at night. It has lovely pink flowers, and stays in a nice rounded hump. The one on the left could be an Astrantia. Star shaped flower in red or pink,

    The third one is too small for me to see at this time. They look similar to the meadowsweet that is starting to flower here at home.Again a beautiful sweet smelling white cloud of froth you see on the sides of the roads, especially here in Devon in autumn.

    3 is definitely one of the rosas - look at those thorns!!! 

    2 could well be creeping buttercup - particularly if it's cropping up all over the place

    1 anemone of some sort

    I think the plant on the right in Pic 1 might be a Muscari, and not a bluebell.
