When your garden goes wild...

For the last few weeks I haven't been able to do anything in my garden due to an injured wrist. We've had rain and periods of sunshine and my garden has gone crazy!

This was my back lawn. I can't believe how a month of alternating rain, sunshine and no grass mowing has changed it.

All sorts of flowers we didn't plant have sprung up.
Anyone know what this is?


My driveway is the old railway line I live on. Here's the end of the drive

Thistles can be quite pretty
My wrist is getting better but I'm not looking forward to mowing the lawn! I think the nettles and thistles will have to go but for this year at least I'm going to end up with a wildflower garden.

Could that 'anyone know what this is' flower be a Pyrenean lily?

I prefer the wild flowers to any lawn.

The yellow flower looks like a tiger lily by the way the petals curl back all the way...any brown spots on the throat?

As far as I can see it's pure yellow apart from the stamens which are a reddish brown.
