  2. Thanks Cherry. The Silene virginica is a native to our area, though not seen often. Love the bright color!

  3. Hi Janet, beautiful collages of the flowers. Is the specked one the Kalmia, Mountain Laurel? It looks wonderful!
    I'm going to try and post today after being sick, then well, then sick again. LOL But trying to get around a little to say hi to a few first after being gone.

  4. Rain Gardener- Yes the speckled one is the Mountain Laurel. Should have been better at IDing each bloom.

  6. I wish I knew all the names of flowers, especially wild flowers. I do pretty well with the birds and appreciate that you visited My Birds Blog.

    I got a new blog. If you don't get offended by things like a child's fascination with cuss words or with expressions kids make that moms and pops don't know about, you might get a chuckle out of my new blog, "Bing-it."

  7. Dave, I love the Larkspurs -- they are so colorful this time of year. I always forget to seed them in my garden in the fall.
    Abe, thanks for visiting. I am always learning the names of new plants. Life is a learning experience. I will check out your new blog-- I am not easily offended.

  10. Nancy, I will try to find out the name of the Rhododendron, I know it was just planted, so should be available.

    Skeeter, thanks. There are so many blooms that I want to show, so the collage makes it easy to do.
