    Buttercup?

    I think you're right @Dovefromabove.  Could it be Creeping Buttercup? (I once mistook this for a hardy geranium and transplanted it - mistake!)

    It probably is Creeping Buttercup. It’s the most common one in gardens.

    Ok thank you both. I was hoping it might be a different kind of Ranunculus. But it seems to be spreading so maybe I’ll dig it up.

    Spreading is what Creeping Buttercup does … ‘creeping’ implies a stealthy invasion … not usually much stealth about it in my experience 😆

    I'd dig it up as soon as you can or it will become a nuisance.  (Nice leaves though!)
