Willowherbs often come up with a bit of pink rhizome attached.

I think the top ones are poppies, and the bottom ones are willowherb - get rid of those ones!

The cherry-plum is full of blossom today, and the tulips are opening. Too much else to mention!

What plants can i grow near my property?

Very few plants do well growing in grass. If you will be clearing the grass away from your planting site, you can plant almost anything except a tree or really large shrub. Do you want it to grow up the wall of your house? Wisteria is lovely.

Cytisus 'Lena' shrub

It's short-lived anyway so I'd take the risk and just buy a new one if it doesn't survive.

Definitely Sweet Violet then. Lucky you! they are beautiful. The leaves will get much bigger in the summer so can be a nuisance in grass, but I just mow them anyway and they still come back.

Sweet violets, Viola odora.

Edit: Sorry, that's the bluer one. I can't make out enough detail on the other one. To identify violets, I need a view of the sepals and of the spur, and also a closeup of the leafstalk if possible.

Rabbit friendly plants?

It is a tree, be very careful where you plant it. There are many different varieties, not many suitable for small gardens.

I think we do need a photo to ID these. Try making your photo smaller, this site doesn't seem to accept high resolution pics.

My garden's got lots of plants from that list but the (wild) rabbits seem to thrive! I think it's a bit on the "playing-it-safe" side, I guess rabbits avoid many poisonous plants. They never touch Aquilegia, for example.
