What is this weed?

I posted this on the weed forum, but there's not much activity there right now.
It's small & has a sharp smell when run over with the lawnmower. I have to take a Benedryl after mowing over it, it makes me itch so bad. I had my dd hold my cutting mat behind it so it wouldn't blend into the grass & other weeds, but you can get an idea of scale from it also.

Could be Dill, wild or otherwise
Does it smell like Dill?

My first thought was that it looked like parsley after a caterpillar's been after it, but I knew that couldn't be right. I don't know what it is. Sorry

it reminds me of a cosmos I have in my yard. Has it set a bloom?

It was in bloom when I took the picture. I recropped it to show the teeny tiny blooms. I don't know if it smells like dill, I don't have any dill to compare to.

I hope it's not dodder...

RE: What is this weed?

PP, you scared me! I looked up dodder though & this plant has no orange in it so that's not it. I'll take it to the local nursery tomorrow & see if the owner can ID it.

Oh & I went to an Asian market today & found some dill. It has a similar smell but not quite as sharp as this weed.

Marti this is the best pic I could find

Oh, ok, that's not it.

It is definitely a plant with umbrel blooms. I'll be curious to find out what the flowers look like when they're more open. Are they yellow?

RE: What is this weed? - Broomweed?

Well, this started bugging me, so I pulled out my Geyata Ajilvsgi book on Wildflowers of Texas. I came across common broomweed or annual broomweed and the foliage looks very similar to your photo. See the link below and google common broomweed to see other photos to see if this is your weed or flower - whichever you decide it should be.

This actually has more realistic pics. The close up of the makes the flowers look too big
