Veronica arvensis

This one is all over in mid spring - especially in cracks of the patio and between stepping stones, forming low tufts with small leaves and tiny blue flowers capping the stalks. It's not until you look really up close that you notice the hairy leaves and stems. It makes for a messy look, but it's not hard to pull.

This is a weed in our garden
