I bet someone can identify them for you so go ahead and post them. We love pictures of beautiful flowers whether the identity is known or not.

Yes, yes! More flowers! Drooling

And Cinda, I see that you have a mayapple there, too.

Wildflowers are more my thing even more than domestic flowers. I'd rather go hiking than do gardening.

I used to love stomping them to hear them pop when I was little.

Are they really apples? I think I have seen those here abouts.

I don't think they are even remotely related to apples. They get round fruits on them but they don't really look like apples. My grandma said that she used to eat them, so my cousin and I tried one. As I recall, it tasted kind of like a green pepper, but not so good. Maybe the one we tried wasn't ripe.

Love your pictures. So many flowers I have never seen before. The mountain phacelia looks alien to me.
I did recognize the larkspur . I do grow them in my garden. The seed originally came from a plant I found along the road at my sisters.

Beautiful flowers, Kelli. I wonder if larkspurs are wildflowers or have just found their way to the wilds by way of the birds, etc. That creek picture made me want to just wade right in. What a relaxing place to sit and forget the cares of the world for a while.

Cajun, we used to call them Maypops. I always thought of the pop we always enjoyed hearing as kids when we stepped on them as being part of why they were called that. Probably not however. We were told that they were good to eat when they got totally ripe but I didn't like them even then.

Here is one of my favorite wild flowers in AZ...I finally got them to grow in my flower bed. Parry Penstemon. Jo
