I have been unable to ID this weed. Any suggestions? Leaves are hairy, flowers are white.

I want to say Spring Draba/Draba verna but it I think your plant is much larger.

Two more guesses; these are taller than my first guess:
Thale Cress/Arabidopsis thaliana
Rock Whitlow Grass/Draba norvegica

Looks like your first guess is the one, Draba verna. It is quite small.

I am going to take a more detailed look at the flower, but I think you are correct.

thanks.

Thank You! *Blush* Pure guesswork on my part...well, and a little wishful thinking. Good luck with the search. Thumbs up

The last photo makes me question my first guess, but it looks like spurge to me. It might be in the spurge family.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.
