In my new yard

Invasive species found in my yard so far: Asiatic bittersweet vine (Celastrus orbiculatus), burning bush (Euonymus alata), Dwarf burning bush (Euonymus alata 'Compacta') [planted], one tiny shrub honeysuckle (Lonicera sp.) [soon to be pulled], glossy buckthorn seedlings (Rhamnus frangula) [pulled!], an occasional European starling (Sturnus vulgaris), and what I believe is trumpet creeper vine (Campsis radicans) [planted, and recruiting all over the place]. There is also some odd purplish rosette popping up all over the lawn, something in the Lily family, which I am inclined to let flower so that I can identify it.
