Six on Saturday Mid-May

As always, wonderful to see what everyone is up to this week.
Here are my six:
Number One:  Years ago, I grew these Aqualegia William Guinness from seed.  Prettier when they look up in the sunshine.
 Number Two:  Three different types of Strawberry and Nasturtium in a hanging basket
 Number Three:  These cheap and cheerful Pansies have graced my front step since October.
 Number Four:  These Forget-Me_Knots cleverly self seeded in a redundant trough although when I attempt to establish them in a certain spot they don't oblige. 
 Number Five:  (My neighbour's) Ceanothus

 Number Six:  I love this Potentilla shrub but it's really woody at the base.  Dare I prune it hard in Autumn or Spring?
