I have a volunteer coming up in my new garden bed. Can't wait to see it open to find out what it is! Anyone have any ideas what it might be?

This is just a guess but could it be Pot Marigold (Calendula officinalis) ?

thanks, Lin. I do have pot marigold but I think its leaves are different--they are less wide, more lance-shaped. These leaves look different.
