Many thanks!! That looks correct!

Okay I’ve got another for May, just sprouting like crazy everywhere. Photo amongst sourgrass, violets and wild garlic for scale. Leaves I believe hairy underneath.

This does not look like a weed, but we are not sure what perennial it is. We'd recommend that you let it flower and send a photo then.

Thank you! I will watch and wait.

Hi Ellen, just wondering, is this one big enough to identify yet?

Looks like American burnweed: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/american-burnweed

Look at more photos online to match up the growing stage of your plant.

Thank you!!
