First one is like a giant daisy. Thats probably all they are image


 okay so next is these. There really good for bees and butterflies. 


 And finally these pink things have a few of them growing round the house.


 Thanks very much. I really should know what's growing in my garden but i was never one for ornamentals. More of the opinion if you can't eat it what's the point. But I'm starting to come round and appreciate them more. Perhaps I'm maturing image

    Ooh Gardenmaiden you're right on the leucanthemum, I hadn't noticed that the leaves were smooth-edged rather than slightly dentate.  Sorry TGG for confusion.

    Well I recognised the yellow flower jekyllandhide but could not think of the name. I think the ox-eyes are about a foot tall with thin stems.

    Gardenmaiden I think you're right on the inula too.  I was too busy studying the flowers to notice the leavesimage.  TGG try googling inula hookeri, the flowers def look right and it's the only inula I can find with leaves like your photo.

  • Thanks folks much appreciated.

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    I have inulas but the leaves are huge, so that's why I didn't think it was that.
