I'm pretty sure that's what we call buttercup, but I'm on my phone here. I'll double check when I get home. Okay? :)

No, I've changed my mind. Not buttercup. The leaf isn't right for that.

I'll keep looking. :)

I can't really see the leaf arrangement on these. Is it a potentilla or cinquefoil? It's not something I grow.

It also looks vaguely like a St Johns wort, aka Hypericum. Usually Hypericum spp. have pretty dramatic stamens though, and I don't know of any that are that clear yellow. More golden to ivory.
