Oops!  I should have looked from closer, or perhaps in better light.  
The plant that's taken over my back yard is some other low-growing 
legume, but it isn't white clover.  I think it's sometimes called 
yellow clover, although it's not a true clover.  I've had it in the 
front for years, but not in the back.  My guess is that it's the low 
light level from all the rain that gave it the edge, as the front yard 
is heavily shaded.
