Weed identification help please

Can anyone help identify this please. 2nd year in my garden and suddenly it’s everywhere. Need to know if it is safe for tortoises to eat!

    I like to see a plant growing, they never look right after that

    Agree, an in-situ photo would help.  Could they be the basal leaves of one of the weedy types of evening primrose?

  • Thanks people. I’ve checked out pictures of the suggested plants and it definitely is not any of those. I will take another picture tomorrow to show in situ.

    I think it is a willowherb, one of the small ones.
