Looks like a penstemon.

The leaves were willow-y.

A legume - cow vetch?

Do a Google image search for cow vetch - I think you'll find it.

RE: Please ID flowers

Yep, Vetch. It's a climber, a tangler.

It's vetch. Very pretty. Often considered a weed by some but so pretty and "nitrogen" fixing I don't think its so bad. But in the garden it needs room to roam. ;)
