Hello and thank you for your posts, confirming my suspicion that it's St. John's Wort, Hypericum. Since it's so invasive, I should probably try to eliminate it along with all the other invasive plants growing along our frontage. What a mess I've got on my hands...but the month or so while it flowers, it's just beautiful.
