Default Mystery Wild Flower

This little unknown plant appeared today in abundance. It is in a sparse section of the the property of a lake neighbor. The soil is sandy and poor in this area. It resides in a sunny area, but we haven't had much of that this year. There are about 5 drifts of this plant in a small area, none anywhere else.

I have it caged but that will be short lived. He wants to mow.

I thought it might be an anemone. The dandelions are for reference only!

Thought I would bump this as it looks pretty common, but I can't out a name on it. The clover is white clover. This area clovered over last year. My neighbor mows frequently, but I did see pollinators all the time. They must have brought this gift with them.

Dandelions!

Seriously, it looks like some kind of anemone. Beautiful

Thank you Linda and KarenO. They are lovely. I have to transplant them to a bed before my neighbor mows them down. I hope some will survive the move. The ground was too hard to dig, but now we are getting some rain.
