I should know what this is Confused but my brain is drawing a blank at the moment. It's something the former homeowners planted; a very low growing groundcover, sprouting in full shade beneath an oak tree. Maybe Alternathera? Ajuga?
Raining and humid outside so the camera lens is foggy but here are a few pictures:

Thanks RJ. I don't know much about either plant. I've been leaning more towards Alternanthera because of the leaf shape and leaf veining. I found a couple that resemble my plant.
