Petere17, you are correct.  I just looked it up and it looks just like that.  Any ideas on how to get rid altogether?  I'm pulling this stuff out everyday!

thanks

Hi everyone, i'm new to this!  We moved in to our home aprox 2 years.  We deliberately never touched the garden for 12 months so we could see what was dead and alive.  To cut a long story short, we have many weeds, but there are 2 types in particular that are litterally taking over the entire back garden.  We really are struggling now!  One has a potent sweet smell with a small pink flower and the other eventually grows a long stalk and buds a beautiful orange flower.  After the flower dies, it turns to one of those weeds where the particles blow off in the wind, and then they grow wherever they land/seed.  They are even growing out of the lawn now.  Here are some pics of them.  Can anyone tell me what these devils are and how to get rid of them?  I worry about the strong week killers as we have a cat.
