Do you Have a Favorite Weed?

Having created art inspired by tree and shrub seeds for several years, I find myself drawn to seed forms in all kinds of plants.

This little weed I found in my herb pots has a bright yellow flower and three part leaves and a really interesting seed pod. The pod is very angular even the stems that hold the pods go off on their own direction.

If memory serves me correctly, it is a form of oxalis. The little pods taste like pickles.I remember eating them in childhood.

Do you have favorite wild edibles and weeds that you enjoy?
