Yes a common weed found almost everywhere.
Nice picture of the flowers of family Euphorbiaceae. Cyathium is observed in the pictures.

Thanks for posting two separate plants...
BUT THEY BOTHE are the same, I think...

There seems to be much heterogeneity in the leaf structure... shape,
color veins ... google images of e. heterophylla shows that.
variation... may be related to growing conditions...

All green poinsettia in India growing by the road side or in your well
tended garden plots are volunteers.... ie mexican plant gone
wild /// weedy in India... I have photographed some in one well
tended turmeric plot one summer at the Hort, Calcutta. Will post
when I find them...

Usha di...

PS please make your Id line unique... atleast add your initials and
