    Yes, very nice shots Kevin. It's also nice that you included the regular and scientific names for those of us that know little about flowers. Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful flower shots Kevin.I'm glad you are able to identify all of them for us because I know if it's not an ordinary in your yard type of flower I wouldn't have a clue.

    On 20-Apr-2010, I did a bushwhack hike to an unnamed peak that resides between Mt. Hope and Hart Ledge. This peak is on the same ridge (called Bemis Ridge) that includes Mt. Crawford.

    Anyway, for a large part of this bushwhack, I contoured at approximately 1,100 ft elevation for about 2 miles along the east side of the Saco River. Along the way I encountered numerous wildflowers including yellow violets, purple violets, trillium, and trout lily. Below is a collage of photos taken of these flowers during my trek.

    But, of all the flowers seen along the way, the one shown below was my favorite. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is called a Spring Beauty.

    I was at a house the other day talking to the homeowners about listing it - and taking initial photos around the yard. I snapped this photo of what the owner called a "pink thingie". I am not sure of it's Italian name or French one as that matter.
