Weed or plant- ID please

Hi, I have found the following sprouting in my border. Is it a weed or a plant seed blown in from somewhere. Is anyone able to ID for me? Thank you

    I see dead laurel leaves. Could it be a baby laurel or a laurel sucker?

  • Trimmed image seems to show trifoliate leaves....see1st pic.
    This rules out Lysimachia nummularia...common name creeping Jenny...which has simple leaves opposite to each other....see 2nd pic

    Looks a bit like Choisya ?

    That was my first thought, too.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Thank you. If its a choisya I will dig out and plant somewhere else

    Choisya would be my guess too.
    Possibly 'Sundance'?

    I also think it's a tiny shoot of Choisia "Sundance".
