Can anyone  identify  this little weed. It's  popping  up all over the place. 

In London. Keen but lazy.

    When sun shines and fklowers are fully open please take a clear pic to add to this thread.
    Accurate id may then be possible.
    Till then just call it  Flobadob.

    Looks like the little speedwells we get in the grass. Lovely - and too low growing for the mower to catch them  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    The leaves don't look like the speedwell I have in my garden, here they have toothed leaves.
    I have seen the plant in the photo but have never known what it is, maybe a different speedwell, or a milkwort?

    Looks like thyme-leaved speedwell - different shaped leaves to e.g. germander or ivy-leaved. Almost sure but would be easier to confirm with a clearer photo of the flower.

    Periwinkle?
    Just for future reference ..Vinca...common name Periwinkle is very different.
     Pics below show Vinca minor alba aurea. A white flowered form with yellow leaves.

    Leaves /flowers are very different from mystery weed.
