Default Weed Identification assistance please!

Hi:

My lawn is being attacked by a specific weed. It is right next to an area
that we had wildfloweres several years ago. I took a picture with my
digital camera and the weed can be seen at the following link

ljd5120.home.mchsi.com/p1.jpg
ljd5120.home.mchsi.com/p2.jpg
ljd5120.home.mchsi.com/p3.jpg

Any help greatly appreciated as to what it is and how to rid the lawn of it.

Larry

Kind of looks like Yarrow but the pictures are blurry and it's hard to tell.

Don't know what your weed is, but it looks much like a water plant I have
in my fresh-water aquarium which is called foxtail.

Where in the heck does Larry live? In the Okefenokee swamp?

I agree the leafy stem looks more like that of a Myriophyllum, an aquatic
swamp plant, than it does like Yarrow (Achillea).

If that's in his lawn, he is watering it way too much.

Is he putting us on and pulled the branch out of his fish tank?

The leaf looks a bit wilty. Possibly tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) or even more
likely, yarrow (Achillea millefolium), often included in wildflower mixes.

Definitely looks like golden *-----*. It is an herb. I planted it about 8
years ago, just one plant. It has taken over one bed. And it grows in the
gravel on the driveway.

I am sorry I am having a brain freeze. Can't for the life of me remember
the name. Maybe chamomile? or marguerite? It will pop into my brain at
any time. I will post the name when it does.

Sorry.

LOL! No. Northern Indiana.

I don't water my lawn. We've had a little more than normal rainfall this
spring but nothing
dramatic.

No fish tanks here.

Thanks for all the analysis. Here are three more.
The first two shows it from a distance to give you a feel of the spread.
The wildflowers were planted on the porch side of the brick divider. That
was YEARS
ago. This year, these "weedy thingies" are taking over. p6.jpg is as clear
as I can get and still give you an idea on how it looks.

Thanks. I found some weed sites on the net and I stumbled across yarrow and
I was leaning that way. I just "Roundup'd" the area. Nothing like a fresh
start!
