Remember how I was bemoaning my inability to grow sweet peas and how I had to be content with its cousins like tufted vetch? Well, a little after those bloomed, these came on the scene! Meadow vetchling (Lathyrus pratensis) could be called a sibling of the garden sweet pea, being from the same genus. You can even see it in the very similar shape of the flowers. It isn’t scented, but the bright yellow color makes it stand out from the rest of its kind. They don’t serve much purpose, other than to look pretty and be used occasionally for animal fodder. We only have one smallish patch of these, but I hope it spreads more on its own in the coming years — they make a pleasant addition to our wildflower collection and are good for bouquets, too.
