Hi,

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.

Looks like a vetch, perhaps Vicia villosa.

I'm sure it's probably not lupine? Sarah
