Breakneck Hill Conservation Land has two types of vetch: cow vetch and common vetch.
I learned something really neat on Facebook this week. Cow Vetch has another common name, Bird Vetch. And look at a close up of the flower -- it looks like birds (hummingbirds, in my opinion) nectaring along the stem of the plant. How cool is that? I am amazed at what I don't see when I look at things. I am grateful for the other people who possess greater powers of observation and point out these interesting features!
