    Hi D’ville! Looks like yellow purslane or that’s what I always called it until just then when I checked the USDA site. Seems yellow purslane favors Hawaii. Well don’t we all! So, its ugly cousin is called little hogweed, Portulaca oleracea L. and this is what it looks like
    Hope this helps.

    I have these things pop up in spring in some of my gardens. The first year I thought it was ‘cute’. Now I pull them out as I see them and refuse to let them go to seed!
