What is this?!

Asked April 9, 2019, 6:09 PM EDT

Since the title IS my question, I'll just repeat it, sort of. What kinds of weeds are these?

Pictures one and three show a perennial groundcover in the sedum family. It will bloom eventually and helps keep other weeds down, but can become weedy since it spreads so vigorously. It is easy to pull though.

The second photo is the weed called hairy bittercress. They are easy to pull so get them now because once those flowers drop and seeds ripen, any little nudge or breeze will send them exploding nearby and you will have more next year.
