what is this grassy weed?

Asked June 29, 2019, 11:56 AM EDT

A grassy weed has just begun to appear and is now spreading in our lawn. The blades of this weed are quite thin. We are not yet sure if it has reached its maximum height. The ones we pulled out are about 5 or 6 inches high. Can you identify this weed (or grass)?

That looks like Nimblewill, which is a native perennial grassy weed.
