Thanks Martin!

The third flower I have taken shots of before, here's a wider shot if it's any help:

I'd guess at an African Daisy (osteospermum) but the tips of the petals are usually perfectly rounded.

Beautiful color and composition, and such fine "micro-stories" so well told!

Must agree with Martin Sykes about the granny's bonnet - here they are called Columbine. And you probably already know that #4 is a fern unrolling (called a "fiddlehead") - can't tell which species without seeing more of the fern...

Thanks mole!

Yeah was mostly the first 2 that I didn't know, and the 3rd I wasn't quite sure of.

I was in love with the fern, the smooth leaves and the contrast with the shedding "skin" was quite nice. Wish I took more photo's, the garden was pretty much perfect. There was a little stream at the bottom of the garden, and apparently they had dragonflies, but couldn't spend too much time taking photo's.

My partners auntie was over the moon that I was so in love with her garden that she said I could come back any time, it's just a shame that it's quite a journey...
