Just one more flower today. This was a new one to me, although it supposedly grows in all of the eastern US, except New England.
I think of vetches as growing in fields and weedy places. This one likes woodlands. In fact, our guide called it Woodland Vetch. It also blooms earlier than others. However, it has a habit of trailing all over everything and will attach itself to anything else, like all its cousins.
This one has white blossoms. It was a delicate plant, but showed up well against the brown leaves.
I'll have to watch for it other places, now. The books call it Carolina Wood Vetch, Vicia caroliniana.
