    Yes. It does look like a very familiar weed but I just can't think what it is called. Anyway, it must be a weed- it's just too happy.image

    Edit:  Hairy bittercress, maybe.

    Looks like bitter cress to me....throws up tiny flower shoots which set seed quickly and then explode, the next thing is you have dozens of the little blighters...get it out pronto.

    Hbc will grow in anything. I've seen it growing in a puddle and in a bucket of dry sand

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    When I saw the thread title my first thought was 'it depends where it is and whether you like it' but since it's hairy bittercress, I withdraw that and concur with the opinions above!

    Thank you ALL very much indeed.  I did have a feeling it would be!   image

    I found in my garden this morning this attractive-looking plant.  It looks vaguely familiar but I'm not sure whether it's yet another weed or a gift.  I would be grateful  for any help.
