Missouri Wildflowers

These wildflower photos were taken down in Warsaw, Mo. There are so many photo opportunities with all the wildlife and greenery of the beautiful wooded area where my mother and father in law live.

I believe this first one is called crown vetch. I've noticed it's being used as a ground cover quite commonly. And why not, it's so pretty! It has purplish pink flowers and a fern like leaf.

This could be called butterweed. The tiny yellow flowers are so bright and cheerful.

This white one may be called a fairy wand.
One of my favorites, spider wort. It's just about finished blooming for the year.
This pink one is very sweet and I have no idea what it is. I'm going to check the library for a wildflower indentifacation book and will update this post when I find out for sure.

*update~Unfortunately I was not able to find a good field guide for wildflowers at my local library. If you know the name of a wildflower I have pictured here, please contact me or post a comment and let me know. Thanks
I have so many photos I will have to do a couple more posts with wildflowers. One will be dedicated to Queen Anne's Lace exclusively. I got some really cool shots to share.
