@Biker....

Just at a quick glance...the top bright green plant is a spurge aka milkweed (Euphorbia sp). Called milkweed as it produces copious quantities of white sap which can be irritating on the skin. Usually grown for their brightly coloured foliage, the flowers are usually insignificant., The smaller plants surrounding it look like various 'chickweeds' and should be pulled or hoed up, or they'll seed everywhere and you'll have even more next year.

No. 2 The blue flowers are cranesbill geraniums...the red ones might be as well, but I can't see the leaves properly. If not cranesbill, they may be Potentilla.

No. 3 is Zantedeschia aka Calla Lily.

No.4 Is a Potentilla (I think) aka Cinquefoil.

No. 5 The red flowers on the dark foliage are Dahlias and the fluffy pink spikes are Astilbe aka False Goat's beard.

No. 6 Is also a Dahlia.

Brilliant stuff, all of those were in Levengrove park, those were the ones we liked.  I think we'll try and source some, we need to get something other than grass in our garden.

I have an app on my phone called plantnet. You take a photo of the flower or leaf and it gives you suggestions what it might be. Not infallible, but pretty good when out and about and you don't have Roger with you.

There's other similar apps, but plantnet is the easiest, free and pretty reliable in my experience.
