FYI, in case you don't know, I think that is "bird's foot trefoil" AKA "toad flax." A very pretty little plant that does well on rather poor quality sandy soil.

Oh yeah, something snapped a couple years ago, and that's what I think about when I'm walking/mowing/working...my problem is still getting the picture in my mind to match what's coming out of the camera

These are close to the road, and get plenty of sand and salt from the streets. Some really bad soil in this spot.

Thank you for that info.

An iris bloom lingering after most of its kind have withered.

I thought it looked like bird's-foot trefoil, too. It is sometimes planted as a ground cover, or included as a nitrogen-fixing legume in grass seed mixes, not lawn seed, not necessarily hay seed or pasture seed, but seed for other areas where permanent grassy cover is needed.
