White and yellow. Could be that some of it is Black Medic, Medicago lupulina. The white I'd guess to be Dutch Clover, Trifolium repens.

There's all manner of other weeds coming up too. And I am completely overtaken by Maple seedlings!

What kind of clover is it? White, red, burr? Does it spread by seed or
underground stem?

I don't mind clover in a lawn and don't bother doing anything about
it
until it reaches threatening levels.  If it looks like it's going
to take
over and destroy the lawn, a little weed b gone does the trick,
though with
clover it usually takes 2 apps.   I've had a patch in the back yard
slowly
spreading the past few years and I knew I'd have to do something
this year.
This spring, it suddenly pulled out all the stops and grew with a
vengence.
Instead of hugging the ground, it was leaping a foot high (only a
slight
exaggeration)  with leaves 5 x (no exaggeration) the normal size.
It's
time.  It's been time for months now.

This area is in a direct line of travel from the backyard to the
front.  In
April I'm traipsing thru there too much to be spraying it.  In May,
it
rained (can't spray if it will rain the next day) until toward the
end of
the month when it suddenly turned 90 degrees (can't spray over 85)
The heat
came down again, but only because it rained again.  But now it's in
the 70s
and the rain is past us, so I can spray - except that it is so
windy, I
don't dare.  With all the moisture it just keeps growing so I have
to mow,
knowing I'd rather have it longish to grab more herbicide.  It's
June now
and I've read that it's going to be a hot summer.  How soon will
the 90s
return?

So what would you do?  This is a tough area to maneuver around, but
I can
do it.  It's just the damned "conditions".
