? Common Buttercup

? Common Buttercup

I noticed this on the rockery the other day. Geranium like leaves, slightly variegated. Vivid yellow flower. I presume it's a weed? Or wildflower?
I think I'll keep it for now, several buds on and it fills a space where things struggle to grow.

The leaves look like buttercup as well. If you leave it to take over you'll be hard pushed to get rid of it.

I remember Alan Titchmarsh saying, a weed is just a plant in the wrong place!
But buttercups will take over though.

Thank you, Thorneyside and Rose, appreciate your advice! I'll remove it tomorrow. ;-)
