Flowering Weeds in My Yard (Erodium moschatum)

I thought this was a pretty sight when I woke up this morning, despite the work ahead. We have just gotten back from a three day weekend late yesterday. We mowed early last week, but it definitely needs it again. Dandelions, clover, and these unidentified tiny pink flowers have been growing the whole time.

I hand pull the clover and other creeping weeds and pop the dandelions out by the root, but it is a thankless task. We have a field across the street so it is practically impossible to control them in my yard without chemicals. I'd rather have the weeds.
Update: The small purple flowers are Erodium moschatum, also called filaree. My photographer husband took a better picture to show the detail. Much better than mine. :)

If I didn't plant it, I pull it out.

I do too, in my garden beds but I have had to give up on the lawn. Life is too short! The weeds grow practically overnight in the spring and early summer, especially with the rainy weather we have been experiencing.


Frequent mowing and grass reseeding helps keep them at bay.
