Found this blooming in one of my beds. Anyone know what it might be?

So the fact that it is called mouse ears chickweed--should I pull it up lest it spread? Shrug! Confused

I have some growing in one bed, they don't take over here and it's not a bad thing to have ground cover.

I like them, some small bee species might appreciate them too.
