IDs please. 

This looks like a foxglove, but strange somehow, and a lot of the flower bells are sort of shut, not open. image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I'm so glad you like the teasel. The Bees will love the flowers and the seed heads will be a big help to birds in winter, especially Goldfinchesimage

    In your last picture, which one do you think is a nasty weed?

    Its in the centre, leaves like a geum, 3 big flower spikes, but only the one on the right has flower buds visible. I can take a pic just of flower stalks, but i couldnt get that in with the leaves.

    The foxgloves arent like my other foxgloves. Dunno if i like them.

    we get lots of goldfinches, big groups of them. Lovely.
