One of the many weeds colonizing our lawn in the early-spring time before the bermudagrass is fully awake. Succulent, interestingly cut leaves, make good fodder for the compost pile when pulled. Its yellow daisy flowers are cheerful enough, so I don't complain too much. But it self-seeds profusely, so in the long run I may have to take counter-measures...

This is a weed in our garden
