What are these yellow plants

I am trying to identify these plants...I bought a house last year and these came with it :). They are a bit weedy...but the bushy one fills early spring when the bluebells and hyacynths are out...and the little yellow peeks around near the herb garden...almost removed it!

Thanks for your help!

RE: What are these yellow plants

The little one is a weed! Creeping buttercup or Ranunuculus repens. It spreads by stolons or long horizontal stems and can colonize large areas, usually those with heavy, waterlogged soils.

Not sure of the larger.....could be a member of the poppy family, greater celandine. Need a close up of flowers and foliage to confirm.
