I'd only ever seen these in yellow (with older leaves turning orange) - was quite a surprise to find a whole field of purple ones. We checked out an Audobon guide at the Meadow Glen Mall and determined that it's a trefoil of some sort. Funny - we did find them in a patch of clover.
Another great save by Sisu: this is actually crown vetch! A peaflower with a crown shape. Wow.
