Author's notes

Photos 1 and 2 are a different plant to 3 and 4. I thought the 1st plant looked a bit different to the 2nd plant, maybe even a different species. I couldn't see any seed pods on the first plant. I have uploaded them together in case they are both Desmodium varians. I will split the sighting if they are different species.

The purple flower with light green leaves is Glycine itabacina. The white/pink flower with dark green leaves is Desmodium variant
