A few more plants to identify if possible, thank you.I think this is a poppy, but which one?A shrub in our flower bed, no flowers as far as I can remember.The third & fourth are the same tree - is it a tulip tree?
Your shrub's a Berberis GD. They flower in spring - small yellowy/orangey flowers with a nice scent
The top one looks like one of the Peony Poppies, Papaver somniferum paeoniflorum which is an annual and the tree looks like the Foxglove Tree (Paulownia tomentosa).

Any more able to identify these plants please, although I am quite sure that the first is a Peony Poppy, and the shrub could be a Berberis, thanks Fairygirl & Mobow.
The shrub is definitely a Berberis, what my neighbour calls the swine with spines !
Yes, your neighbour is right Erics Mum, it certainly does have surprisingly sharp spines - a useful shrub if you want to keep next door's cat or dog out of your garden!
Didn't mean to post the above pictures, but I don't know how to delete them ......
The 3rd and 4th photos look like the Foxglove Tree (Paulownia tomentosa).. it has large leaves and if you are lucky purple flowers which look a bit like foxgloves
Having googled the Foxglove tree, the leaves are a different shape to those on my photos, so I am not convinced that this is the correct identification Mobow
The tree could be Catalpa biginoides. The warmer the clime the bigger the leaves.
