This past Spring and Summer my son and I hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Connecticut. Along the way I photographed many wildflowers. Most I was able to identify-about a dozen I cannot. Here are three. Do you know what they are?

    The middle photo is a Yellow Flag Iris. I’m still working on the other two.
