Notes:

Last year, a neighbor’s potted wax begonia rolled downhill, stopping at our chain link fence. It bloomed and survived the winter. This year, downhill from that begonia, we have quite a few of the plants shown in the photograph. The lobular shape of the leaves makes me wonder if they are somehow related to the begonia, or if they’re just weeds.

    I think you are correct, Laura. The petals and flowers on the long stems, as well as the leaves of the main plant, are a good match with all the online images I’m seeing for the kidneyleaf buttercup. Thanks!

    Maybe kidneyleaf buttercup (Ranunculus abortivus). Cop & paste the included link below and see if you have a match. Best wishes!
