Weed ID

Asked April 17, 2015, 3:03 PM EDT

Can you please ID this weed which is blooming today in my Bethesda yard. It is very low growing and has a small white flower. Please ignore the clover which is also included in one of the photos. One of the photos makes it look like there are 4 leaves together, but in fact there are 2 opposite leaves on the weed, which are shown on one of the photos. Thanks for your help
