The below appear to be weeds but would appreciate confirmation

    Top one is wild mustard or Charlock (Sinapsis arvensis). Its a weed.

    Middle one are the leaves of Cyclamen growing around the Crocus leaves. Not a weed.

    I'm not sure about the bottom one but someone else on here will identify it for you. image

    the yellow one looks like Alyssum saxatilis, aka Aurinia saxatilis

    The pretty leaves are cyclamen, probably Cyclamen hederifolium, they'll disappear soon til the flowers come in late summer

    The last is a weed, one of the Speedwells

    Bala, when you try and decide between the Charlock and the Alyssum, look at the leaves as well as the flowers image

    I think Nut is right about all three. I have all three and I would only dig up the last one.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    Thank you all.  I checked the foliage and Nut was right.  Thanks again.
