    Your shrub's a Berberis GD. They flower in spring - small yellowy/orangey flowers with a nice scent  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    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!

    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.
