I keep seeing these yellow flowers on my walks and some appeared in my garden. The flowers all grow on a single stalk in a row. Any ideas?

Looks like Kerria japonica to me, commonly known as Easter rose because it blooms in spring and resembles a rose. It can be invasive in some areas, but I find it to be a jolly shrub. For me in the Pacific NW, it grows in part-shade to pretty much full shade, which makes for a welcome splash of color.

It looks like Kerria japonica to me. It's an invasive weed in my opinion as it suckers like billyoo.
Salvia and anything unusual

Also because it is in the family Rosaceae, which includes roses, pomes, and others.

Keep your eye on it in your yard. It suckers quite freely, not sure if it also self-seeds. I find it pretty easy to contain over-vigorous plants by just deciding how large I want them to be and cutting a ring around that area when it first shows sign of life in the spring, and pulling everything that is outside your chosen range. I find kerria to be a nice shrub that intermixes well with others, as it will kind of weave its way among neighboring branches. Some folks might not like this, but I think it looks pretty.

Thanks, I'll watch it but i like to keep the edges of my garden quite wild, and i like the look of it so i don't mind if makes a home. It seems to have really caught on around here, i see it by the river and in any no-mans land unkept spaces it's flourishing. I assumed it was some kind of attractive weed

I rather take exception to the term 'weed' - but that's me. Enjoy your kerria, it really is a lovely multi-stemmed shrub.

That's simple confirmation bias. There's no average "weed."

Okay. What if I just say I like its appearance more than most.
