    I believe this to be silverweed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentina_anserina

    Now it’s my turn…. “I don’t think so!” 🙂
    Poppy’s normally have 4 petals, your first shot has 5!
    I think it’s a member of the ranunculus family – the kind known as ‘Buttercups’ and i think specifically most likely Ranunculus acris. (Meadow buttercup)

      The flowers do seem similar but, the stems & leaves don’t match. But, plant species have many, many branches.

      I was wondering, initially about the petal count. I knew the red poppies for WWI were four petals.

      Thanks for the tip! 💛

        I think the link i gave was of a European variety, but the US has the same species but maybe a different genus ( leaves/stems etc.)
        How’s this? https://gobotany.newenglandwild.org/species/ranunculus/repens/

          THAT’S IT! *stomping on floor*

          Thank you! They are so cute but, apparently, invasive. And, no wonder I don’t remember seeing them as a child. They have been migrating over the years since they are not native.

              You may be my go-to flower finder, then. Do you happen to know what the plant is that I posted, yesterday?

                It’s a Euphorbia cyparissias or Cypress Spurge – Here’s a link: 🙂

                  Considered a noxious weed in Colorado. Charming.

                  What were your search terms? Big, round, green & yellow weed? I didn’t know where to start… I’m good at research…if I know WTH I’m looking for.

                    My exact search terms were: Green and Yellow Weed America. (on Google Images)

                      😆 I guess I was just overthinking it. Sometimes, the simplest of terms will do the trick!

                      Thank you!

      My phone does well in some instances. Other times, it won’t focus worth a damn.
