This is a wild plant (I do so resent the word “weed”!) growing out of a crack here. Apologies if the image is less than spectacular, but it is the best I can do under the circumstances. Thanks for your help!

    It’s hard to tell from this distance. Can you give us closeup of the leaves, stems? Also using a pen or your hand for scale. For now I’m taking a wild guess, it could be either a type of nightshade (Solanum) or the a pellitory (Parietaria)? We do need to have more photos to confirm or rule out these two suggesting genera. Check out these included links below for species in both groups. Best wishes Martin! Link for Pellitory of-the-Wall (Parietaria judaica). Scroll down for more images, click on images to enlarge.
