Looks like the cleavers weed which flourishes during wet years like the last three we have had – on a slightly different topic the English word “to cleave” is a word that can have the opposite to it’s first meaning -“cleave” can mean to split apart as in “rock of ages cleft for me” – “cleft” is the past tense for ” to cleave” and it can mean the opposite and denote a coming or sticking together as in the cleavers weed!
