hi there, have a few photos i have collected and wanted to know what the plant /tree is hoping you lovely experts can help. 

1. is a willow tree but not sure which type

2  another tree. Dont know what it is has red leaves

3. very pretty weed spreading itself across garden purple flowers.

4. woody rooted plant with yellow carnation looking flowers on a long green stem.

5. think its a weed/wild ground cover with yellow flowers 

does anyone know what this plant is?

Yes it is a euphorbia. Its stem contains latex and this can burn the skin. so important to keep children and pets away from and needs to be handled with gloves. stem must be broken for you to come into contact with latex. Some people are allergic to so possible cause.?

i just learnt of this recently. should really be a sign up/ warning. Someone i know has burns on skin as a result of this plant but i see them in all the local parks.

Hi thank you for reply. Is there no way of revitalising? And what kind of prep would i need to do for drainage etc at the time of laying turf  i did everything  supposed to. Leveling it etc. The dogs arent too much of an issue as they  have a specified area they use for toilet.

Looking for some advice with my supposed lawn. Turf was laid last year and it seemed to be doing well.  There was a couple of patches which i attempted  to reseed. It has now turned to a mud patch with tufts. Ive tried to lay more seeds as ive read they can germinate as low as 6 degrees. But not  happening. There are patches  that  puddles form on  also. Any suggestions on remedies  to get it looking in a better state? 

pins and needles after weeding

Does stinging nettles give you pins and needles? I havent got any bumps you normally have at the site. Normally its just a little itchy not whole hand bad and delayed reaction. 

Thanks for tetanus reminder. I def should you never know what you are going to come into contact with.

Good evening. I was doing  some weeding today. Little ones along a fence. Something sharp  pricked my thumb. But its a few hours later and i have pins and needles in not just my thumb but several other  fingers. Should i be worried? Anyone know what type of weed has this effect?
