Hello:

I was wondering if anyone could ID this plant for me. I'm pretty sure it is a weed, it sprung up on a dirt patch next to my raised bed garden. It's providing pretty decent ground cover and it's not ugly (to me) so I've allowed it to stay and it really seems to like my decision as it has grown rather rapidly. Just would like to ID it in case it tries to take over everything.

Picture #2 is blurry so no one can see details. Can you take another one? Look like a daisy family species maybe? Picture #1 have 2 species - you can see some round leaf plants to the northeast of the picture.

Reminds me a bit of Anacylcus depressus... ?

Almost look like it - I heard they are grown more often out west. But still not sure.

Closer, clearer pictures, please, including flowers, if any.
The leaves don't resemble Anacylcus depressus, which has "feathery" leaves. Is it in flower yet? (Those on A. depressus are showy - white composite flowers with pink backsides to the petals).
