Can somebody identify what this plant is (see the attached pictures)? It appears to be a common weed in my garden.

Yep, wood sorrel, a nice field nibble.  Has a citrusy taste, but also contains some oxalic acid so if you have gout, limit your intake!

Going to disagree if that yellow flower belongs to it, it is not woodsorel Oxalis acetosella as that has white/purple flowers, it is one of the oxalis though.
