This is a pic I found of the same creeping plant I found in my yard. Not sure if it's a type of clover or something. Would love to know what it is. Thanks

Perfect! I thought it was just a weed at first since I had never noticed it in my yard before. Glad I kept it! Smiling

P.S. I'm new to this forum and love it already! What quick answers! Thanks so much!

Most people think of it as a weed. I love it in my yard...it smells so nice when run over by the lawnmower.

It's growing in an area that could use a little ground cover and it's low to the ground so I don't mind it so much Smiling . Unlike the lemon mint balm that overtook our whole yard for a couple years. This warm spring gave me the chance to get out there and dig ALL up, so I could plant "good" plants again. Can't wait to see the results!

I couldn't enlarge the photo but I agree with threegardeners, it looks to be Glechoma hederacea ("Creeping Charlie"). There are a few photo's in the plant database for comparison: Creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's Creeping Charlie now. It was a bad pic but I'll try to take a pic of it tomorrow and I'll post it up to make sure. Smiling
