It reminds me of the flower of Feverfew. The Leaf looks similar too :) Someone else may no better than I. :)

It is very pretty and if it turns out to be a weed I'll still want to keep it unless it has some very nasty habits.

The flower is shiny just like a buttercup and has 5 petals, white outerpetal and yellow inner petal. The leaves are also somewhat shiny. The plant grows in a mound and so far it does not seem to send out any suckers or run underground. There were a few plants which I pulled (very easily) but then had second thoughts and left one to one to see what would come up.

Feverfew

Feverfew flowers look like daisies but yours look like the petal is yellow not just the centre of the flower ( I forget what you call that part). Reminds me more of a buttercup flower except for the size etc Hmm well it will be intresting to find out. It is very pretty! DMG
