Thank you!

    No 1 looks like forsythia and no2 looks  like it might be penstemon, or maybe hebe salicifolia or perhaps even some sort of campanula. Hard to tell from that photo. 

  • thank you, i'll take a look

  • Don't think it's a pentstemon - mine are flowering right now with much broader leaves.Looks more like that very common veronica that self seeds all over the garden - very pretty if there's nothing else there and easy to evict if it is totally taking over the garden.  It would be green at this time of year, and not in flower.

    Agree on forcythia - though the leaves are also quite like willow.

    Somebody experienced will know more!

  • I don't think that's Forsythia.

  • thank you :)

    It's not Forsythia, it's a type of privet hedging when it's overgrown and hasn't been pruned. Got it at the back of the garden. 

  • thank you!
