The first picture shows leaves growing from the flower stem, which makes me think of verbena - don't think primulas do that do they?

Ponds, that's what they could be used for Clari - lots of little wildlife pond opportunities

Good morning Alan   Hope you're doing ok

No I'm not getting that, but some time ago I downloaded an Ad-blocker - can't remember what it was called but it seems to work.

If it's just in the lawn  use Weed & Feed according to the instructions and then keep mowing and mowing at least once a week in the growing season.  That will  see it off eventually - but as Busybee says, if it's in the surrounding area it will keep spreadng back in so borders etc will be harbouring it. and it may well be coming in from outside the property - it depends on whether you and your sister want to do a thorough job or whether you're prepared to just keep it under control.
