Are you talking about the ones in the middle with the rounded leaves?  I’m not sure what they are but I think they are some kind of weed.  We get them a lot too.

Agree with @BooRadley:  looks like something in the Poison Ivy family to me… GOOGLE – poison ivy – to see for yourself.

And for info on how to handle it / get rid of it effectively.

Poison ivy can have smooth or segmented leaves, be a bush, hairy vine, or look like this on the ground.  Leaves of 3, let it be.  Hairy rope, don’t be a dope….silly, but good rhymes to remember.

If you do pull this up, don’t burn it.  It can get into your lungs (or those of your allergic-to-poison-ivy neighbors) and cause big problems.

Poison Ivy doesn’t have to have… jagged leaves. It comes in many varieties… as the saying goes “Leaves of 3… let it be”

Here is a picture that looks A LOT like your posted pic…

It comes from Wikipedia…  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxicodendron_radicans

For more info and pics of other kinds, you can look there.

PS… As for how it got in your yard inside a walled community.  Poison Ivy is a weed, so it could have blown in on the wind for all you know.

Can you bag it and take it to a garden center? I bet they could identify it for you!
