Small weed? with 3 heart shapedleaves

vanguard0ne(8)July 13, 2014

I have this plant come up on my lawn, quite a pretty little thing. Any one have any ideas?.
The leaves measure about 15mm, & have a small reddish dot in the center.

Could be a clover or maybe an oxalis. Both are considered as desirable plants by some and "weeds" by others.

Spotted Burclover aka Medicago arabica

Unless deliberately planted, clovers tend to grow in areas that are low in nitrogen. I personally do not like clover in my lawn.
