A Pretty Weed! Erigeron Annuus! Thanks FlowerLady!

OK, I always seem to have a weed/flower that never makes it into the weed book.  The closest plant I can find is the white heath aster.  It doesn't bloom until late summer!  Oops!  I guess it's just early like everything else!  Well, I just want to get it pulled before it spreads thousands of seeds everywhere.  You'll cover for me in case you know who wants to know where it went!  Well, thanks to my FlowerLady in Florida came up with the ID for me Erigeron annuus or Eastern Daisy Fleabane. Very soggy and humid in the 'Burgh!  Got my walk in and that's all that matters.  Hope you are having a great day.  Got to go read.  I'll explain tomorrow.  Talk to you later.

It looks like feverfew.

I almost wish it were feverfew, Anon. It is not.

That's exactly what it is FlowerLady! Thanks!

I love a pretty flower. If you like it ~ it is not a weed.

It is also called Annual Fleabane and it was in my weed book.

Oh, I get so conflicted about these weed flowers, Cindy! Sometimes being a master gardener and knowing right from wrong is not the way to look at it! Thanks for your advice as always. xxoo Nancy

I get obsessed with finding out what it is exactly, Faith! That's a problem with becoming a master gardener! You have to find out what the answer is and fortunately FlowerLady knew what it was! Thanks for stopping by.
