Not a legume

The flower is not that of a pea or bean. The leaves of cultivated peas are round and fairly nondescript. Peas in general can have any of very many forms of leaf.

Not a legume

Yes the flowers are obviously not that of a legume, however the leaves are similar in construction to those of a vetch, being compound, pinnate and opposite

Cardamine?

Cardamine sp./hybrid/cultivar is a good fit for the flower and this time of year (if they are around 15mm or a little bigger across), but not a particularly good fit to your description of the leaf.
