Never seen this before

Hi, I have looked everywhere online for a picture of the attached weed, so I can identify it. This was found in a State Park near Willmar, MN. Wondering if you can tell me what this might be? Thank you, Julie Fuchs

This might be Celandine Poppy, but a photo of the flower would confirm it. The leaves are quite variable in shape, but are a soft blue-green color:

Or...it could be Plume Poppy:

Hi again. Another expert has suggested that this could be Bloodroot:
"Might the leaves in the photo be bloodroot? That's a likely find in a state park and bloodroot leaf shape also varies somewhat. https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2937/14218781714_bcf751a39f_z.jpg https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/bloodroot "
