Does anyone know what this plant is? Is it a common weed?

    Can't see the pic very clearly ... there's a lot of glare ... but it looks a bit like tansy

    Might be the pics but it looks very brightly coloured for Tansy. I think tansy has green stems rather than brown though? If it is and you pull it up wear gloves, as it can be quite an irritant and cause a rash to some people (i.e. me)

    I know what you mean @Jellyfire ... I'm not sure about it ... but sometimes when plants are young and about to flower the colour can affect the stems and sometimes leaves?  The photo's not clear ... where's Nutcutlet?  She's good on these ... but a pic with less glare would be good  :/

    I also looks a bit like anthemis I've got coming up in my garden, but mine are only ~6" atm
    Just been for a wander in the garden - it also looks a bit like feverfew I've got coming up....

    Don't think it's feverfew ... it's not as tall as that!  At least not the feverfew I've seen.  Ma used to grow it for migraine relief.

    I'm here Dove. Not Feverfew and my Tansy is about an inch tall so far this year.
    A photo with less glare would help, also when and where.

    Maybe I'm confused then. I'm no 'nut' on wild plants, but had assumed the white flowers in the pic were feverfew - they get to about 4ft. I've had this patch for years.

    I can't see any white flowers in the OP Pete. I saw the white as burn out on the photo

    sorry nut - the photo was in response to Dove's comment re. feverfew and is nothing to do with the OP
