Default herb or weed?

Geraniaceae caroliniaum L. (Carolina Geranium).
Diffusely-branched semi-erect winter annual. Stems greenish-pink to red, densely hairy.
Leaves with long petioles, hairy, dissected into variously divided segments, margins blunt toothed.
Flowers pink to purplish with five petals. Fruit a five-parted capsule that forms a "stork's bill" up
to 0.5 inch (1.2 cm) long. Reproduces by seed. Found throughout the continental United States and
Hawaii. Also occurs in Canada, the West Indies, Mexico, Central and South America, and Australia.

It sure looks like an herb, but it has no obvious herbie smell.
Anyone know what it is? Sure is a robust grower, in the herb garden-
of all places:

I don't think that is her weed. But it IS the weed I was
trying to identify. I didn't even post yet, and I got an
answer. Thanks!

Now here is my question. I have a garden that has both
cultivated and wild flowers in it. Will it hurt anything to
leave this one there too?

Default herb or weed?

it it was cilantro no matter what size it was it would be pungent

We grow some and the plant gets about 3-4 foot with white flowers and
readily reseeds itself..

The deer avoid it completely!

I thought it looked kinda like cilantro too. But so far, no fragrant
smell from the leaves, and I don't believe there are flowers, but I am
going to let it grow and see what happens. Maybe it will take on some
herb fragrance as it gets older..
in the meantime it's.........growing like a weed!

Yesterday at the garden center I was looking at catnip. Could it
be that? Surely looks similar to me.

Default herb or weed?

Thanks again to all who offered opinions. Still not sure what that
weed was. But as it matured it definitely got more weedy, and looked
like it was getting ready to throw seeds.. so out it came.
For those who like solving plant identities here is another one: Small
ferny almost a ground cover type plant, that has come back every year
from an original planting of mixed NC wildflower seeds. It is about 5
or 6 inches tall, rather fragile in appearance, but is really nice and
I would like to get more of it, if I knew what it was:

You've got to include the part of the URL that got wrapped to the next
line. Here are the full URLs:

Sorry I can't help with identification. Do they produce any flowers?

Sorry about that. I think Blaine got it. I compared photos on the web
and it sure looks like yarrow to me. If and when it blooms I'll
confirm that.
Sorry about the url wrappings... better at gardening than I am
