This looks like a foxglove, but strange somehow, and a lot of the flower bells are sort of shut, not open.
This looks like cos lettuce! No flower yet
And i assume this is a nasty weed? Name?
Yes, the 1st is a foxglove and the last pic is a teasel. Oh, you sneaked another pic in! "Lettuce" one is teasel.

Looks like a Teasel to me
Ooo he can stay then.
Last one looks like a crocosmia and a geum
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 Goldfinches
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.
