I was much more interested in the wildflowers and weeds that grow roadside within the park. It was a spectacular day!

In case the captions didn’t clue you in, please help identify these flowers–even if they’re weeds. Everyone deserves a name! No phylum and genus junk though. Let’s keep this all in English.

the one just after the blackeyed susan is yellow coneflower. Similar but different.
