This looks like Buttercup. The flowers are pretty and attract bees and butterflies. The downside to these fast-growing flowering plants, is that after the flower dies off, the seed heads they make are those round balls or burrs . The individual seed looks like a "comma", and have a tiny hook on the small end that grabs onto anything that gets near it.....your clothes, your pets, etc.
This is definitely a type of wild buttercup and it really looks like the Bulbous Buttercup but other types are so similar it's difficult to tell.
I agree, the best way to maybe ID the species is to look at the leaves but even some of those are almost the same.
From what most agriculture sites state, all species are similar enough that all can be treated in the same manner but the Bulbous Buttercup has a corm and can spread from the corn and from roots at the top (bad and difficult to eradicate).
Bulbous Buttercup - information - herbicide needed to eradicate from yard.
This site shows were it grows so check to see if your state is included.
If still in doubt or need more information on killing what you have you can contact your county extension agency for help.
It appears to be one of the many types of creeping buttercups. I would match the leave to figure it out.
This looks like a spiny sowthistle. They normally come up in winter and will flower in spring to summer. The flowers are yellow and resemble a dandelion, but forms in a corymbiform cluster. The root of spiny sowthistle is a taproot.
