    looks like Veronica to me (aka speedwell). Winter annual. It has tiny blue flowers. Diffucult to control.

    I agree.

    That is a tough weed. I like an Ester Based 3 Way.....Before it gets warm.

    Corn Speedwell. Gotta hit it quick with ester forms of 2,4-D or garlon, before it goes to seed for the next year, which is really quick once it blooms and dries.
