    Growing along with the Fumaria martinii along the Pacific Slope Garden fence are lots of other wildflowers, none of which I knew. I have come up with names, but will be happy to be corrected. Here is one photo of the fumitory - several other photos are in this ID thread: Tiny tubular pinky-white flowers with two red tips.

    I just assumed these were Phlox, and was sort of ignoring them, though they are almost the showiest flowers in this area. But I see that phlox have five petals, and these are probably dame's rocket, Hesperis matronalis.

    There's a good chance this is Silene latifolia, white campion.

    This Fabaceae is likely Vicia americana, American vetch. The only other vetch that seemed to be in the running has pointier-tipped leaves.

    This very showy western trumpet honeysuckle, Lonicera ciliosa, has a label.
