Hoary Bitter Cress
Cardimine hirsuta* /Mustard Family
These small flowers bloom very early in spring. Within a few weeks the long, thin fruits ripen and pop, throwing the seeds when touched, ensuring a new crop of this pesky weed for the future. Unfortunately, these were preparing for a new crop in my yard!
