Verdun, don't use up all that lovely sunshine - you're supposed to be saving some for us

And I've heard that  they're going to start filming Poldark again when we're down there - you're going to want sunshine if you've got more scything to do

I would take cuttings - they'll strike easily in damp soil - then when your original tree has to be taken down, you'll have more to replace it with.

Much better to grow them outside, but some die down in the winter unless they're indoors.

Picture 1, the little pale green seedlings in the centre of the picture?  Could be seedlings from an opium poppy

Picture 2 could be a rather limp and sorry for itself Centaurea montana

but either could also be several other things - clearer pictures would lead to better identification

Perfect time of year and conditions for fungi - they're part of nature's way of breaking down organic matter in the soil.  There's no need to get rid of them - just enjoy them as part of the wonderful natural display we get at this time of year. 

However, if you mow the lawn with the toadstools there you'll get a mushy mess, so just knock them down and sweep them away before mowing.  You can put them on the compost heap.
