    Weeds are in a relatively shady wet spot with heavy clay soil and they are everywhere! probably about 1000sq ft of them. I believe one is mouse-ear chickweed but is the other dandelion? The leaves are similar but I've never seen them that color before. No herbicides were used in area.

    I would look at it as a variety of prickly lettuce, but it sure has gotten thick... I bet it connects by rhizomes... :)

    I'll go out and see if there's a milky sap in the leaves. Also, there aren't hairs on the chickweed so I guess it's just common chickweed, not mouse ear? Ill go get some better picks.
