Could be Bird's-foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus). but there is at least one other species of Lotus that is similar, and often confused with it.

Looks like Lotus corniculatus. There's also some leaves of clover, Trifolium sp., in the first photo, but I don't believe those belong to the flowering stems - looks like the leaves of Lotus corniculatus are visible in the lower part of the second pic.

No, the clover is separate......lotus corniculatus..yay, thanks, I'll go look that up. Walking my little yard here every day is like an adventure hunt...lol..the place has been so uncared for for so long that lots of things have settled in and in a totally different climate I'm learning new plants.
