the garden is certainly coming on. a word of caution re the oaks and beech, hey may have TPO's on them and you may face a heavy ine if you do any work on them without permission. even if they are on your side of the garden. We have several trees in this category.

the pretty little flower is one of the fumitories. possibly the common fumitory i less than 18" tall or white ramping fumitory if it gets to a metre tall. related to the corydalis group.

Annoying about the trees, but as Seaburn says you have to make sure you are allowed first, before doing a drastic chop. I'd want that annoying piece gone too.
The pond will attract so much wildlife, the birds especially, but hedgehogs and frogs too, provided you have access through your fences so that they can get in. My neighbour put in a wildlife pond then fenced it off with netting completely to stop his dogs getting into it, until I told him he needed to lift the wire at the bottom to allow the frogs etc., in.

Good news bout the trees! I think a little trim would be nice for you to gain some light or sun in your garden.
Your progressing well in the garden too, loving your pond. It sounds like you’re quite excited about planting it up and all the wildlife visitors. Look forward to seeing more of your pics!

Your pond is looking good, L'bug and when you get it planted I am sure you will have lots of visitors. I think nothing uses our teeny-tiny pond but I keep finding froglets in my plant troughs so presumably it get used at some point! I do like your Mum's frog!
