Cannot see the top one.
Second one looks like Potentilla suffruticosa.
Third one looks like Anemone x hybrida in its white form.

The orange berries are Lord and Ladies (Arum) as the young lad says, The fluffy stuff to the right of them is willow herb, a weed that should be pulled up and binned asap.

Thank you all. I will remove the Lord and ladies since it's poisonious.

Potentilla suffruticosa and the Japanese anemone - I love! Read about them and they are an excellent addition. Will plant seeds in Spring :) especially pink ones.

Slow down, Detta, why are lords and Ladies poisonous? They are only poisonous if you try to eat them! Leave them be and enjoy LOOKING at the berries.

Thanks Bulb. It's because I often have children at the house not mine, but my friends who are extremely adventurous. Would not like them to try this red berry :)...

Detta, most of the plants in our gardens are poisonous if you eat the wrong bits. Rhubarb, potatoes and tomato plants all have poisonous parts. I believe that educating children not to eat things until they have asked if it is OK is a much better way of dealing with the issue than being too protective. However, it is your garden and children that you are responsible for so you need to do what feels right to you. Don't throw the tubers away until you have offered them to other gardeners in your area.
