This plant has small white flowers (half inch) growing in clusters at end of stems.
I had the camera on super macro to show the leaf structure.
Suggestions have been Corn sperry and thyroptomene maisonneuve?-but
I can not find pictures of either?

Thryptomene are plants native to Australia, if that helps. Here are a couple of links for you to see if that might be it.

Thanks.
I still can not find a picture that matches this plant.
The plants here are not branched, but that weed is branched.
Since these are easily pulled---I'll keep them until I find an identification.

Well, it's apparently not corn spurry or thryptomene then. But it must be a good flower and not a weed cuz if it was a weed, it would be hard to pull Blinking Hilarious!

Do you want me to post your picture on some of the other gardening sites I belong to? Some of those people are really smart and might be able to tell you exactly what it is.

Totally wild guess here, but could it be some type of ranunculus? I can't see the leaves very well in your photo, but my initial thought was "water crowfoot" tho the flowers are a bit off.

None of those look like it.
It is the arrangement of the leaves in whorls which I am looking for as well as the white flowers.
Some of the flowers have the faintest hint of pink.
Yes, if you know of other forums, let's try there too.

It sure is a pretty flower, whatever it is. Do you have a photo of the foliage you can show? The bloom reminds me of Oxalis but the stems remind me of another plant I've seen before and can't remember the name.

The plant I was thinking of is Anemone but I'm not sure it's the right one either. I have a hard time comparing photo's for identification but here's a link to pictures of Anemone canadensis for comparison:

The flowers look similar,but this plant has a very skimpy structure.

Maybe something from the Dianthus Family? The way buds are arranged and the way they cluster together reminds me of a dianthus....

Thank you---that looks much like the plant.
Mine is very skimpy, but that may be because it is in part shade.

I want to bump this one up and see if any one has more ideas.
I think that it was more likely Mountain Phlox Linanthus Grandiflora ?
