I don't think it is Vinca minor as the vinca minor has flat blue petals that grow on a bush. This plant 's petals are rounded, producing blossoms along a tall stem. It could be a blue false indigo. It has blossoms similar to a sweet pea.
I know where you are coming from but around here the Vinca Minor is more vine like. Arid, alluvial soil with abundance of sun and warm year round.

That's my vote
Thank you both, I think so!
Vinca Minor has shiny leaves that grow in a vine and spread with underground roots. If that is what it is, get rid of it as soon as possible. The stuff is so invasive that it will spread in your entire garden. It doesn't look like vinca to me at all.
This is not a vine and grows on stems straight up.
The description of a flower like a sweet pea does not describe the flat blue one of Vinca minor. I think it is Medicago sativa, the herb we know as "natural alfalfa".
Thanks I will go look that up. You are certainly right; that is what it is!

I wish I had put the flower closer up. Will see is I can.

Oh my goodness! Wish I had a better shot to see closer. My try cutting it and see if it shows better. Thanks

This is a very pretty simple flower. I don't know if I've ever seen them before. Very much does look like a sweet pea though.
