Can you identify this?

Asked June 4, 2018, 7:36 PM EDT

We planted a small herb garden and thought we planted oregano - but this plant is coming up and doesn’t smell like oregano. We are thinking this might be a weed or something from the bird feeder. I tried googling it but could not figure it out. Hoping you can help. Len

The bright green whorled leaves remind me of Carpetweed, Mollugo verticillata. Compare photos online and this article from Wisconsin Master Gardeners. Check back here if we need to try again. https://wimastergardener.org/article/carpetweed-mollugo-verticillata/
