Nice Weeds There

Last year, our neighbor had lawn guys come over every week to cut and fertilize the lawn. A lot of good that did. A few days ago I looked at her backyard and noticed big dark patches. These have turned out to be areas of little clover-sized flowering plants that have taken over large parts of the lawn. They have circle-shaped leaves and tiny purple flowers, and the bees love them. It's very pastoral but I wonder what the neighbor thinks.
At first glance, our backyard doesn't seem to have any (our lawn was in pretty good shape last year), but closer inspection reveals a few interlopers from next door. There's a low hedge between our yards, but it's probably only a matter of time before we get more of a purple look to our backyard, too.
