Lawn problem

There's another little yellow lawn pea called Black Medick, Medicago lupulina, but more definition in the pic would be required to say which one this is

Dunno about dermatitis. A day pulling this stuff and you've no exposed skin left to be inflamed.

Looks like gunii but the same applies to most. Coppice them as Will suggests, they make lovely shrubs with the best colour leaves

Think about the probabilities. Which is the one found in found in all GCs, sold by all hedging companies and forming miles of hedging in the uk?

Prunus laurocerasus

Shrubs and Trees

I think they're just standard Prunus laurocerasus Angie. Mine often drop the fruits at the green stage.

Why don't some of us like them?

For me, too big and lacking in elegance.  Can be pruned back, but look awful for weeks afterwards.  A tendency for the odd branch to go yellow and die back, causing further die back after  removal. Branches get very top heavy and break off in heavy snow if we get any. And last week the wind ripped a large branch apart and into another which will result in the whole thing being cut back to base when we get round to it

Odd flowers on Aquilegia Black Barlow

There's nothing standard about aquilegias unless you have a species that has been grown miles away from any other species. (and I mean species, not a hybrid or cultivar which most of them are). The are a promiscuous lot and you get what you get which will be different again in the next generation
