Amberique bean, wild pea, wooly bean etc.
They call this one everything but the right name "Republican Bean" --- Can you see the elephant?

Of the same genus as the Blazing Star posted below, but this Blazing star variant comes with a thinner stem and spaces between the blooms (though a heavy flowering along the stem.) Note the tendency of the other Blazing Star to build near the top in the form of a torch.

Anyway, all of that is to say, in the last two weeks I've noticed all manner of new flourish, and some exotics I have never seen before. Big theme on the interstate (with a couple of months more to go full tilt) are the little golden ragweeds shaped like tornadoes.) But other flowers, some of which I have never seen in any number, are jumping from the shoulders and meadows.
