Could it be Narrow Leaf Vetch?

Definitely a member of the Fabaceae family with those distinctive sweetpea-like flowers. I think Greene nailed it.

Yes, thank you.....I think so also.....vining stem and leaves said 'vetch', but the flower looked a bit un-pea like to me when I took the pic. I think with the surprises that keep popping up in the grass, that if I were to stop mowing, I might have a delightful wild meadow....lol..

I've had common vetch before, but this one seems quite a bit smaller in scale....of course, it's the first one to show up and it's in an area previously mowed, so it may get larger with a bit of time...
