This is a common garden weed that I come across all the time but I didn't know it is an Oxalis from the Oxalidaceae Family until I wrote this post and checked the identity of this weed.

Commonly known as the Lavender Sorrel, the light pinkish flowers can be rather attractive too and do look like typical Oxalis flowers with its trifoliate leaves. I should have known better. A link is attached below.
