Plant identification help

Hello,  image

I am curious what these plants are and I was just wondering if anyone had any idea because I cannot seem to put a name to them. The first picture was taken last month and they were very low growing, the second one I found out walking, I don't think it was planted, I also wish I looked closer because im not 100% convinced the flower is from the same plant as the leaves. Any help would be great, thanks image

    1st one is often called Pride of London as it popped-up all over the place in the east-end after the blitz. Looks pretty when there is a big patch in flower.

    2nd is a kind of spurge that I'm sure will be named by a spurgeologist here soon

    The top one is a saxifrage, the bottom one , one of the euphorbia family.

    Saxifraga urbium is the posh name for London Pride. Useful little plant  image

    I'd like to become a 'spurgeologist'  Pete - is there an exam you can sit?  image

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

    it would take a top class spurgeologist to ID the species/cultivar image

    the flower, as you suspect, isn't from the same plant Emmalily
