    Betula or birch. Possibly Betula utilis, but I don't have my library resources available to me to check what else it might be.

    Yes, Betula utilis subsp. jacquemontii at that location. The dark grey log with scaly bark is something else, perhaps Cedrus deodara or a pine Pinus.

    The pink flowers are Impatiens glandulifera or a close relative.
