I am guessing it's clover. The leafs look like clover. I was at my BIL's today. He said he planted this years ago and can't remember what it is. It has spead like crazy and comes back every year. Bees were all over it.

Oxalis. That's it, thanks. Not sure how good of a bee plant it is, but the were hammering it today. Could be that is about the only thing blooming right now too.

We have it all over an old garden/flowerbed near the Barn. Probably 1/4 acre but have never seen a Bee on it. Are there different varieties that Bees don't use?

Looks like there are a bunch of different ones. When I google imaged searched. I have a lot of this one in my yard. I didn't know it was oxalis. And I have never seen a bee on it.

Here is the wiki page on Oxalis.
