Notes:

Three common NE Texas weeds I can’t name. Help please! A torn leaf on the silver one shows white fibers. The tiny white flower on another looks like a tiny bluet. The third may be a legume, it seems to have miniature yellow flowers or buds
Thanks

    The bottom one looks like a goldenaster… desirable.

    Middle one looks like maybe a carpetweed (Mollugo sp.)

    top one?
    how about one of the Phyllanthus weeds?

    Thanx, FLOWER FANATIC. I ruled out carper weed on the middle one because it has four petals ( or sepals) instead of five. I don’t think the bottom is golden aster because no aster like flowers. Top one may be a Phyllanthus, but I haven’t found a species like it yet. Not giving up yet.

    Not having flowers yet, doesn’t rule it out.
    I found the golden aster posts from my house… Check them out:

    As far as your middle weed goes… A picture of the growing plant is always superior to a plant that’s been pulled…. But possibly one of the low growing spurges?

    Or houstonia… has 4 petal flowers…

    On reflection… Maybe cudweed… the host plant for the American lady b-fly…
    Or possibly pussytoes.

    Cudweed is right . Picture identical to some on this site. Rabbit tobacco and Pussy toes works as well.
    The middle one is doubtless a bluett. Some Houstonia, but I don’t know which. I am satisfied.
    Thank you all. I am glad there are ” fanatics” around. I’m not one, but I hate to see anything & not know what to call it. Especially on my farm.
