Below are a couple of dozen wildflowers that I photographed last month. I have numbered all the photos, so you can refer to the flower’s number if you want to talk about a specific one. I haven’t been able to identify all of them, so if you see one that you recognize please leave me a comment. Oh, and if you think I’ve misidentified any, I’d love to hear from you.

    1. Thanks, FeyGirl. I had been saving up photos for a September Wildflower post, In the end I wondered the post had too many photos (and bunches were left on the cutting room floor!).
