It does resemble a couple of these photo's of Columbine seedlings! https://www.google.com/search?q=Columbine+seedling+images&tb...

I'd put money on it being Ranunculus sceleratus, having grown some of them myself... they start out looking pretty cute, as in the photo.

The structure of it - the way the leaves all come from a central point - is basically wrong for columbine. The leaf shape is off too, hence my suggestion. The link Lin posted shows similar plants with these characteristics.
When I had Ranunculus sceleratus come up (either with the seed or possibly in the potting soil), they quickly developed buds and bloomed. You could just wait until that happens, for confirmation.

Edit: The photo in the lower right in this link shows the "odd" structure of R. sceleratus seedings that I mentioned:

I will keep an eye out for blooms , it might be ranunculus, I don't have any on the property that I know of so may have come with seed Shrug!

Not columbine I grow about 10 different columbine and none are like this seedling , the leaves are much thicker on the seedling

thanks , I will report back with any changes

Lori, you are welcome ... you have helped with so many plant ID's and you're knowledge is truly appreciated. This post just reminded me of a Ranunculus that pops up in lawns and container plants down here in early spring. I think it's Ranunculus repens (Creeping Buttercup):

That is not Ranunculus repens, possibly R. sceleratus.

I am sorry I should have noted the identity, from Lori's link I could see it was R.sceleratus

I will mark the top Thumbs up

Well, if I would have read the thread more carefully I would have seen that R. sceleratus was already suggested.

The leaves on the photo in ATP database are (curly/ scalloped) My plant seems more smooth , not toothed. Shrug!

If we are sure ?? should I add my photos to the database?

Your (Gardengus, that is) plant is Ranunculus sceleratus.

The photo posted in the ATP site for this species is anomalous for Ranunculus sceleratus - the upper leaves are normally not toothed; only the basal ones are. Will have to look into it more.
