Hope someone can tell ME this time.
It was growing in a really dry lawn in Wisconsin and only about 4-5" high.

No it isn't. It is much too soft.
It's kind of like the softness a pasque flower has after it has blossomed.

I think it is, it looks like Trifolium arvense, rabbit's foot clover:

Yup that's it.
I think it is a pretty petite puff.
Can I plant it in a flowerbed or will it become invasive?

Another wassit?

Wondering if this is an oak bud waiting for spring.
I don't think oaks are connected to ground runners though as shown in the bottom right of the photo.....

Not an oak bud. Does your wassit have any more photos to go with it?

That was it. I figured I had it all covered in one shot. The bud, the stalk and the runner.
If I can remember, I'll take a few more IF I can find it. It was only 2" tall and growing in the forest.

I'm pretty sure oaks don't grow from stolons or rhizomes, so definitely not an oak.
