I was trying to use app to identify this plant and failed.
Also asked in another forum but no one knows.
Any one know what kind of plant is this, it spreads on the ground and has red flowers?
Thank you.

Difficult to tell without a closer view of leaves and blooms.

I agree Could you get closer? If you can get close enough to touch, smell a crushed leaf also.

Creeping thyme?

I wondered about Creeping Thyme but couldn't find one with red flowers.

My first thought (without seeing it clearly) was Lotus maculatus. Definitely need a better photo.
Lotus Vine (Lotus 'Amazon Sunset')

Here are some roughly equivalent creeping thyme photos:

But yeah, it could be any small leaved creeper....pretty though.

Sorry for no live link. I'm a noob.

Red Creeping Thyme (Thymus praecox 'Coccineus') is said to have magenta to lavender-red blooms.
