This again seems to be my most visited forum....
anyhow would appreciate some information on this weed?
It beginning to spread in the lawn in a particular area, and in the flower bed also.



Now I'm also adding a pic of some flowers that grew from seed earlier this year, I dont know the name of them but they were nice during the summer - the foliage on this flower is very similar to the 'weed' so if anyone could identify both I'd be very grateful -

It looks a bit like camomile, but I really would be no expert. Wait for some more suggestions !

hmm, It's definitely more 'daisy' like.




I googled the Camomile suggestion and it seems to fit, its a self seeder and the area around where this plant is where I'm finding it growing and in the lawn, and over an old patio
.

I don't think I mind so much if it is it camomile, but if it's not I had better start weeding.

It looks like Scentless Mayweed, Tripleurospermum inodorum (L.)
Scentless mayweed is a common weed of cereals, sugar beet and other arable crops. It is also a frequent garden weed.

Scentless mayweed is very variable in size and habit. Some populations have developed resistance to certain hormone herbicides.
Scentless mayweed is not palatable to livestock and is avoided by hens. It is a host of several insect pests but is also a source of nectar and pollen for beneficial insects. The sap contains an anti-viral agent that inhibits the growth of polio and herpes viruses. (How did I do)
