looks like ficaria, certainly not oxalis.

Mine have nothing to see at present, that's my only doubt. That and the orange flowers. golden yellow is what I would expect

I have some soil that's very lacking in substance Obelixx, dry, but not sandy, like dust. Some plants go well there so I haven't tried to improve it. In one gale a few years ago I thought a Bupleurum fruticosum had been broken off but it had been blown out of the ground after at least 5 years growing there.

The verbena haven't broken, they're half out of the gound, as was a 4 year old buddleia. I've cut that back a lot and pushed the rest back upright. All will be well.

Mine all went near horizontal in the last gale. Some will have seeded though and some might come through. I never end up without any. There'll always be some in the gravel on the drive

Andy, that sounds a bit dramatic. I hope it turns out to be something easily dealt with.  

That's Monty done till March!
