We moved into a new home in the fall, and now several delightful surprises are popping up in the garden. Some I've kept, some I've replaced, but I'm not sure what this one is. Any insights would be much appreciated.

My first thought is Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare). Might not be though. If no one else can give you a positive ID I would let it grow and bloom later this year and compare the flowers with online photos.
If it is Tansy I think it is a worthy plant. I have a big clump of them I've had for 25 yrs. at least. It does get leggy though and may flop. I still like it though. Supposedly it is an insect repellent.

It does look like Tansy.
