Possibly one of the Conyza genus. Possibly the one listed below. Conyza canadensis

My eyesight is poor but it doesn't look like a match to photos of Horseweed (Erigeron canadensis) (synonym Conyza) in our database.

I reminds me of the goldenrod (Solidago canadensis) that I have been weeding out of my flowerbeds.

Sorry to have to disagree *Blush* , but the plant in the photos has toothed leaves, more like Golden Rod than the smooth-edged leaves of Horseweed. I don't see any tiny flowers in the leaf axils of the plant either, and Horseweed doesn't usually get that big before flowering (in my garden, anyway).

I remain unconvinced, but we are all agreed that it's a weed!
