ID help please

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Hi Sarah,

Unfortunately I'm on a machine where I can't enlarge your photos, but your first two (the plant with the ferny leaves and green/yellow ball-shaped flowers looks like Pineapple Weed to me. Can you check out our entry and see if it matches?

The second plant (and you can barely see on pink flower coming from it -- is Herb Robert, and here is our entry for it:

Thank you Nina 🌹🌹
That confirms what my thoughts were - but better safe than sorry.
