Has it ever bloomed? If so what color were the blooms and how many petals did it have?

Not sure,  it's in a spot where my wife planted a plant, but now she thinks it's a weed.

Looks a little like Indian Strawberry.

Pull one out and see if it has a big root that smells like a carrot.

I agree, it looks like flat leaf parsley.

If it's taking over everything and everywhere, I'm afraid it's Goutweed, AKA Bishop's Weed and many others. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aegopodium_podagraria

I've read that goats love it and that the gout in goutweed is a corruption of goat. Needless to say, I don't love it. It magically appeared in my back garden space around five years ago through the fence dividing my yard from the neighbor's. One year I had a nice young man dig it all up and sift out the roots. It came back. I've been pulling and sifting for roots ever since.

Good luck!

My immediate thoughts are Strawberry. The stems are all wrong for flat leafed parsley. Does it travel with runners? If so that would anchor strawberry. Goutweed is not as prostrate as this appears to be.

Looks like 'rough cinquefoil' - 3 leaves as opposed to the regular cinquefoil with its 5 leaves

I also got that one. It's not parsley or strawberry. Bunnies will munch it. It's not bugging me, so I let it be for now.
