  2. Hello Bob,
    that's maybe Lythrum sp., perhaps Lythrum salicaria. It's found all over Europe and Asia. Where did you find it? Normally Lythrum blooms during summertime ... so maybe I'm wrong with the classification.

  4. Hello, the flowers are pretty. I think ladybugs like to eat aphids? Enjoy your day, have a great new week!
