Is plant just appeared in one of my pots. No idea where it came from as the soil is recycled. I think I have seen it before, might be a "weed". Looks like it could be invasive considering the number of pea pod type seeds. The seed pods are tightly packed together and seeds inside must be the size of seasame seeds. Small pink flowers are small and insignificant.

Thanks

Reminds me of Vetch (Vicia sp.)

Thanks Islander, I don't think its a vetch. I googled that and the seed pods are different and the vetch blooms are different. The seed pods on mine are only about an inch long and clustered in a tight group. The blooms are pink on tightly grouped stalks and hardly visible as individual blooms.
