In the weeds

I sat on the edge of a retaining wall and sketched some weeds in the dirt this particular afternoon. As I was drawing, I moved around in order to find different clumps of weeds that interested me, which explains the uneven lighting. I tried looking up this particular weed on the UMass Weed Herbarium, but I never managed to identify it. Please leave me a comment if you know what this plant is called. There are tons of them in my yard and garden, so I’m sure it is very common.
