Weed is a state of mind
I'd keep it, along with all my other volunteers
I think the little pea is Lathyrus pratensis, Meadow Vetchling.
Top is an aquilegia, 2nd japanese anemone (many threads on the invasiveness of this one). the last is a hydrangea
I think it's Polygonum (or possibly Fallopia now) convolvulus or a relative. One of the buckwheats.
The second is Lysimachia ciliata, probably 'Firecracker'
I don't think people realise what those sprays do Lyn. They're sold as the answer to all troubles, most of which are not troubles at all, just part of life in the natural world
I like those, interesting looking seeds pods.
When the wood boring insects move in the end has come. Try and avoid the pesticdes if you can, they kill the goodies as well as the baddies and you'll never achieve a balance of life in the garden.
I'd remove and replace
I do think you need to eat them to have problems and that journalists aren't the best people for advice on the subject.
