unknown prennials - any ideas?

So the previous owner thought it was fun to plant little round gardens in the middle of the lawn. Very odd to me and a real pain to mow. So I want to move this 2 plants but I am not sure what they are. Both are about a foot or so tall by 2 feet wide.

Any help would be appreciated. Took these this morning.Thanks.

The top one looks to me like a potentilla, with pink flowers. The lower one, I have no idea...Jess will probably know.

Luckily I do! :lol: Its a Euphorbia. Just make sure when you dig it up you wear gloves. The milky sap is an irritant will give you a rash and also makes you photosensitive.....It burns your skin in the sun!

Thank you both of you. Funny you said to wear gloves because it well mess my hands up. I spent about 2 months with contact dermitius, couple tubes of steroid cream and eventually a pregozone (spelling?) shot just fix it.

Anyway my hands were FUBAR's from playing without gloves. Didn't touch that plant but thank you for the warning. Gloves are life!

Won't move things until the spring. Need to get the timbers to make the garden near the back of my house and long the fence have some boarder between the grass. Will look nice too and match the one along the garage that was there when I bought the house. Fun stuff that is for sure.
