I found this growing randomly in my backyard. I like it! Does anyone know what is?

It appears to be Butterweed (Packera glabella), or maybe one of its close relatives.

The flowers look the same but the leaves are different.

I agree with Kent that it is Packera, but a won't guess on the species. Bonap shows six species that are known to grow in Ohio.
Packera anonyma
Packera aurea
Packera glabella
Packera obovata
Packera paupercula
Packera plattensis
