    This does not look like Lesser Celandine and is definitely not creeping buttercup so I would say Mouse ear hawk weed.
    It is a weed and wants taking out, it will spread but not as fast as creeping buttercup or celandine.
    I watched celandine cover the floor of the local woods from a few plants near a beck to covering and smothering all the banks around in less than six years walking my dog.

    Frank.

    Yes image  definitely one of the many variants of Hawkweed.

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !
  • Yes me too. Though going with the definition of a weed as a plant in the wrong place I suppose it depends where it's growing. One woman's weed is another woman's wildflowerimage

    Absolutely, I grow both lesser celandines and hawkweeds (several species), and buttercups, in the wild area of my garden.
