Can anyone identify this plant? My backyard is full of it, along with henbit. The bees much prefer these little blue and white flowers to the henbit. I had to be careful walking in it to take the pictures, worrying about stepping on a bee they were so thick on it. And I guess they were gathering nectar because I didn't see any pollen sacks being filled. The flower is very small and grows right above the ground, probably not more that 1" high.

Thanks guys, it may be speedwell, but the speedwell looks like it is higher off the ground than what I'm seeing.

Iddee, thanks. I remembered reading that thread but couldn't find it to attach this question to.

After doing a search for speedwell, I think that may be it. There are a lot of different species, and this may be a low growing kind.

The ones in my yard are no more than 2 inches. Some are only the stem and flower. No leaves. They vary quite a bit.
