There are SO many vetches, and they are SO hard to understand. I think this one is cow vetch, Vicia cracca. Note how the blossoms grow on only one side of the stem. I was surprised at how attractive the patch of it looked.
It was growing quite vertically. Although it's not as "messy" as the hairy vetch, it has tendrils that will grab any nearby grass, tree, etc and create a tangled mass of vegetation. But this patch looks quite neat. Here are the leaves.
Ellen and I got together today and did a variety of things. The weather has gone from 95 degrees on Monday to 57 and raining today. We need the rain, and I like it cool, but what a change!
I have lots of flower pictures, projects, birds, etc. And who knows what I'll select for tomorrow- I only promise that it will be something good!
