Plants or weeds?

Could any one identify these mystery plants in my garden or are they weeds?

I did wonder if the first could be Kerria - I dug a large one out early last year but didnt see any growth last year.

 

Many thanks

    The top onecould be kerria, can't get the pic to come big enough to see.

    The second looks like a buttercup.

    We should have had this forum when I had my first garden. I was nurturing ground elder til my MIL turned up and recognised it

    Creeping buttercup has a very invasive habit...as its name suggests, it spreads by underground runners, and can be very difficult to remove especially if the runners get entangled with the roots of choicer plants. They're not the billowing field buttercups, even though they do have yellow flowers.

    No, get it out. You don't want to leave that in your garden, it's a nightmare to get rid.

    There are some nice buttercups but creeping buttercup isn't one of them. Lovely flowers but............................................

    You've been out there weeding today? You deserve an extra glass of wine.
