Help identify this weed

Can someone confirm what this is? I'm thinking its creeping charlie. Seems to be in a moist, shady, thin lawn area. Haven't seen any flowers and I asked the homeowner but they said they didn't see any flowers either. Maybe it already flowered and they didn't see them is what I/m thinking.

Seems to be forming a dense spreading mat too.

Here are some pics of the areas and a close up.

Is this an unknown weed or you think it's creeping charlie?

It goes by many names: Wild geranium and ground ivy are common but creeping charlie is right; if it is small. I used methsulfuron. But it is not that hard to control.

Ron, what part of the country ?
I suspect creeping charlie, (ground ivy).
Does it have square stems?
Its a member of the mint family--should have a slight mint odor.
Does it have above ground runners?
hints of purple flowers coming soon?

Sorry man, Zone 7, this house isn't close to me and I don't have the sample I pulled up.

I didn't see any flowers while there and failed to check the shape of the stem.

I'm going to hit it with some speedzone.

If that weed is growing in a round cluster with creeping lateral stems with nodes, it may be mallow.
