Can You Identify these Flowers? A Contest!

Something I love to do lately is take a walk around my yard and identify trees, wildflowers and other living things.  Its so wonderful to know the real names of the beautiful living things on my property and it really interests me.

This shrub flowers each early summer and today I was able to confirm that it is Mountain Laurel.  It is our state’s flower.  I thought it was pretty neat to teach our daughters that.  It is very beautiful but can also be poisonous (see how important it is to know what is on your land?).  Native American Indians were said to use it in a drink to commit suicide at times.  I am not sure how much truth there is to that but I found it interesting.  In either case, children and pets should keep away from it and especially never eat any part of it.

I thought it would be fun to have a little identification contest here on my blog.  Here are two more pretty white flowers that I found along my walk today.  I’m not sure if they are wildflowers or the beginning of berries.
Can you correctly identify these two flowers?  
Flower A:
Flower B:
If so, please leave a comment here with a link to some proof of your identification.  I will then randomly pick two winners to win a FREE Midsummer Festival E-Book from Little Acorn Learning on Friday, June 7th after 8 p.m. EST.
Good luck and have fun!

  4. Hi, the first image looks like multi flora rose but I'm still not sure, lol
    The other one looks just like honeysuckle- I have it growing in my yard so I'm pretty sure that's what it is : )
    I just googled both and looked at the images….then checked
    Wikipedia ; )
