The leaves are too fine and frilly, Dorothea. My best guess would be flixweed, but the flowers are too dense for me to decide for sure.

I was wondering if you could help me identify some if the weeds in my yard

Jan


Looks like Flixweed to me. Medicinal :)
Get a plant in your hand and google some pictures to be sure. It's kind of hard to make out the flowers.

All I know about these is that they HURT when you step on them barefoot! Anything good about them??

Jan


Thistle. I don't know which one. They're edible if you don't mind working for half an hour to get a skinny piece of celery. Great weightloss strategy.

I'm pretty sure this is nightshade with purple flowers and red berries. It grows all over my kid's playhouse We've been decorating mud pies with them for years! I just found out that they're poisonous!!! Along with the crown vetch growing all along the ground around it ..... sigh..... They're both such pretty plants that I was happy to let them grow..... FOR YEARS! Glad I didn't poison any neighborhood kids not to mention my own!

Jan


Yup. Looks like nightshade.
