Welcome!

I would say no. The growth habit and venation are wrong. It looks more like a Potentilla but that could be wrong also.

That is NOT Poison Ivy - Toxicodendron radicans.

It appears to be an herbaceous plant, with several trifoliate leaves arising from a common basal position. You could provide more images that illustrate these features to help others ID the species.

Definitely not poison ivy. I think it's wild strawberry - Fragaria vesca - and if so? You're one lucky gardener!! YUM!!
Moving from New York to the Treasure Coast leaves me feeling like a newbie in the Garden. Nevermind that I've been at it for 35 years! :P

Appreciate everyone's thought. As per John's recommendation, I added a few more photos. Do those help?

It looks like Fragaria to me too, possibly the native Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana)

Turns out, these were not wild strawberries. I'm still not sure what they are, but once the "strawberries" started taking on burrish qualities, I decided to pull them and move on. I am still curious to know if anyone has a more viable idea. Thanks!

The seedpods make me think Bidens, but I can't recall the leaves well enough, and there are several types of Bidens.

Take look at Geum canadense - White Avens. This is one of those chameleon-like native perennials whose goal in life is to confuse the most well-meaning gardeners and ID enthusiasts.

Sorry, did not notice this picture carefully with flower visible, with petals, calyx and single fruit per stem, agree that this is a Geum (White Avens (Geum canadense))

Those two are the pictures I payed attention too, they are similar but are not the same with the first one, note the burrs are clustered in three, which are not Geum of any sort,
http://sernecportal.org/portal...

So I think we are dealing with two plants of similar appearance

I'm not certain that my photos at the database entry for Black Snakeroot (Sanicula canadensis) are even incorrect? Someone identified it as that but it may very well be something else!

at least it is consistent with all Sanicula sp image on line, I'm not sure either of how to distinguish species, since there are several sp within that genus, however S canadensis is the most common among all Saniculas in their distribution Sernec said

I did a bit of research and Sanicula canadensis is found in the area of Floirda where we used to live and where my photo was taken. http://florida.plantatlas.usf....
