Many thanks Lori and Mark ... much appreciated.
Nowhere near so lovingly photographed (I do try! ;-) ) as Michael's and Cliff''s, but here's Ranunculus platanifolium:

You have a nice specimen there, I haven't seen them so floriferous here.
Ranunculus platanifolius is a not uncommon native. This picture from 2012 shows a particularly huge one.
