Identification, Photography, pink wildflowers, summer wildflowers, white wildflowers

Rosa multiflora is a wild rose species with small, multiple blooms. This wild rose species has an intoxicating fragrance… I always move in close to drink in the heady perfume. Have you stopped to smell the roses today?

Purple Iris


Identification, Photography

Iris were brought to North America from Europe as an ornamental plant. Still a favorite amongst gardeners and flower lovers, you can often buy cut iris flowers from garden shops in the spring. There are many colors to choose from within the 100+ varieties, but this rich purple seems to be the most popular.
