I think you have a Triodanis! If so, it's an adorable little native that should disappear quickly & completely when it gets hotter. I'm trying to leave them in my beds while pulling other sprouts.

Are there 2 plants?
The leaves and pointed seed pods look like Geranium.
Is the flower on a different plant?

It is definitely not Rosemary.

It is so annoying when people insist they know it all. I am and have been willing to keep an open mind and happy to learn things every day of my life. I am now 88. But, you have these so called "Master" gardeners who planted a few seeds and they grew professing to know it all. Now that I have ranted, it may not do any good to go back with this photo of Rosemary but you know, just because I think it better to be accurate than let them make fools of themselves with the wrong info, I think I will just take the time to show them. This group is just a fun group of people who want to learn and it is on Facebook so you have no idea who they are, but no matter what, I think I will post it and see if I get knocked down. Thank You! for your help. I will see how it goes and if they want to learn fine, if not, so be it. Have a great day. I will report back. Rolling on the floor laughing

Being able to see some of the foliage should also help folks recognize this mystery plant.

The foliage looks like Carolina geranium, but the blue flower looks like Venus looking glass....

Or perhaps Herb Robert, which is an invasive geranium in my area. I've been finding it here and there, but so far it has not become problematic.

The bloom looks like Clasping Venus' Looking-Glass (Triodanis perfoliata) which is found in New Jersey: https://uswildflowers.com/deta...

The leaves (and I think I see buds too) look like Wild Geranium. It reminds me of Carolina Cranesbill (Geranium carolinianum) which is a N.J. native: https://uswildflowers.com/deta...

I agree I agree with others, it looks like two plants; the leaves are wild geranium and the flower is Venus Looking Glass.

Leaves not right for Geranium robertianum.
