What does anyone think these are please?

Photos would be handy.

It looks a lot like Lysimachia "Firecracker " , I have it in my garden. It does spread a bit, but nice contrast of purple foliage and yellow flowers.

Thank you Nan - the photos are of two different plants though. If the brown is Lysimachia, it wasn't there last year, although to be fair everything was very overgrown until I attacked it in February.

If it helps, everything in that border had yellow or white or yellow and white flowers. I'm a bit concerned the lobed leaves are a weed or self-seeded tree.

Actually, I think the other plant is a bramble now I've looked again.

If the stem is prickly, then yes, a bramble, but it looks vaguely like Japanese anemone.

Yy to japanese anemone, or a mini maple tree that has been cut several times and thus branched out.

The second one looks like raspberry's or a bramble to me hides because I know I'm probably totally wrong

wine I'd be delighted if it turns out to be a Japanese anemone or a maple, but I think it's a bramble. However, I have plenty of experience of digging out brambles

The first picture is ajuga or bugleweed. A good little spreader and great for ground cover.
