I’m wondering about the plant with thorns and round leaves coming out of the sedum. I didn’t plant this and it wasn’t there at the beginning of the season. Do you know what it is? Thank you!

The plant is a black locust tree. They produce a seed pod and a seed must have ended up in your yard. Just dig it out and get rid of it. Here is more info. https://naturalresources.extension.iastate.edu/forestry/iowa_trees/trees/black_locust.html
