Carlyle, IL (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This flower is about a quarter inch in size. Found on a muddy lake bank. I thought the little green pods might all erupt with flowers at once but it appears to do one or two flowers at a time. ChisAnthemum, where are you?

Chris, thanks much for the ID. Very interesting. I take it the flower fades and then grows one of those stalks that are a seed launcher of sorts. I haven't seen any ready for launch yet.

I still have more unknown (to me) flowers to post.

Ah'm raht cheer! This is cranesbill, a wildflower in the geranium family, and the "pods" are just that, immature seed pods and not flower buds as you thought. These come in various shades of pink, white, or lavender, but this one appears to be the Carolina Cranesbill, Geranium carolinianum, below:
