Hoping to get an ID on this little wildflower. It's growing after the rain. Sometimes it will also show up in the fall.

It reminds me of Mimulus. Sort of....

Difficult one! At first it seemed to be Brassicaceae, but the flowers don't have the correct stamens and the leaves don't somehow fit. The plantain family is the farthest family you would expect, but look at those leaves.

Gratiola neglecta ..
