Common Chickweed?

- would be my guess (Stellaria media), but I can't see the stems. They have two lines of hairs, like germander speedwell. The leaves are pale green, and the deeply-notched petals are shorter than the sepals - both match the description.

Common chickweed

Sorry - my sloppy description. The hairs are in one line, not two, but it usually alternates at the leaf nodes. I had to check this - not really paid attention to chickweed for years, having inherited a garden full at one time.
