I agree Those little wing things are the seed pods. There has to be a maple close by.

Thank you very much.......there are so many of these. Is it possible to kill them by careful spraying with some sort of weed killer ???

They would probably die if you just hoed them under.

I'd just wait until after a good rain and pull each one out. Very relaxing job. Or, if you have children or grandchildren you might offer them cookies to pull them all.
