Bermuda buttercup
Oxalis pes-caprae

It's also known as sour-grass. I first learned to suck the sour juice of these stems while playing behind the church and waiting for the grownups to be done with their Sunday socializing.

I noticed Bermuda buttercups everywhere early this spring, even more so than usual and even among Pacific Grove's famed hot pink ice plant.
