I visited my old gardens in central NJ. It was quite overgrown.
Thses flowers were growing. I do not recognize them, and was wondering if someone could ID them for me:
I know I'm probably wrong on this, but the shape of the flower looks snapdragonish. I have no idea if the leaves are correct though. Our wild snapdragons are yellow and much smaller.
I know it's some kind of legume, might be Desmodium canadense

The leaves were very willow-y.
Looks like a vetch, perhaps Vicia villosa.
I'm sure it's probably not lupine? Sarah
Yes it does look like vicia villosa. Here's a picture. Sarah
