Okay, I don't know if I forgot, or if I've ever known the name of this pretty spring weed. Looks a bit like a veronica to me.

I agree, Lin. Looks like Speedwell (Veronica persica) to me also.

I agree with Lin and Jean. And it can be weedy. Some plants just don't have boundaries. Smiling

Well, I say weed because they are everywhere and they were not planted.
