I thought I had eradicated this plant from my yard long time ago, but this morning I discovered a single species growing among some other weeds. It's quite a poisonous plant and will burn your skin severely if you touch it. On the other hand, it's also quite an interesting plant and I'll keep this one for a while until it starts to produce seeds. The name is Petty Spurge (Euphorbia peplus), also known as Cancer Weed or Radium Weed. Here's a closer view of the tiny flowers and seed pod:
