Ken, this is either carpetweed (Molluga verticillata: http://missouriplants.com/Whiteopp/Mollugo_verticillata_page.html) or a galium, of which we have over 10 in the genus.

Does the plant have a lot of small hairs on the stem/leave that allow it to stick (like velcro) to people/things? If so it is a galium, if not carpetweed.
