Ooooh... thanks peeps (surely not a winter flowering clematis? It's sure as heck left it late before sprouting up!)

Anybody fancy trying their hand at another for me?

Are you sure it's clematis? it looks like that barsteward of a weed which crops up everywhere with white flowers to me.

I`d go 100% with it being a clematis, unknown what variety of course?

(Is that barsteward your referring to baz the dreaded bine or vine weed? with white "trumpet shaped" flowers mid-late summer?)

The second one is definitely a gladdy - even it it appears to be growing at a funny angle.

lol... it is growing at a funny angle... there are three or four plants, three flower stems flowered, and a fourth is budding, but the wind's had the lot of them - somehow managed to snap two of them from the base... the weather's been fairly rough here (in llanelli).

I do hope that first one is clematis.... but, doesn't clematis stay there and start growing where it left off the following year? I didn't think clematis died right back to the ground each year.

Yep, definitely a clematus and gladioli (sp). Got lots of gladioli in my garden, there are some photos of last years ones in one of my albums. Definitely need securing in this weather though, they like to grow tall but they aren't particuarly strong!

Clematis loses it's leaves in the winter but the wooden twigs remain (similar to some honeysuckles and trees!). Looks like you have one that's self seeded from somewhere as there is no wood associated with it yet. It's ok if you like it but as with most climbers they can be tricky to get rid of. If you want it to flourish, better give it something to climb up aswell.
