I'm leaning towards Senecio ampullaceus, although my leaves are smooth edged.
It seems like I may have known at one time but can't remember now... LOL!

Thanks.

I'm back to this one> I'm pretty sure it's Texas Ragwort (Senecio ampullaceus).

This plant is coming up again so thought I would take more pictures. The leaves do look a bit toothed.

Not a good weed, as far as I can tell. We have a lot of it here, too.
