Wildflowers of Cape May

Wish I knew the name of this lovely yellow wildflower I photographed at the Cape May Migratory Bird Refuge.

These tiny, delicate flowers are called marsh pinks.

The woman at the bird refuge told me these small, daisy-like, yellow flowers are camphor.

Can anyone identify the flowers in my Nature Notes post? I think they may be ageratum.

Here are all my Cape May photos.

I wish I could help but unfortunately I can't!
The shots of Cape May you have been showing are all lovely. You seem to have chosen a fine place for your vacation break.

Leora says

I had no idea how lovely it was when my husband and son arranged the trip. I was expecting arcades and amusement park rides (Wildwood has these-we didn't go)...we did do the arcades, for about an hour.

It's good I did my own research so I could find some spots I liked, too, instead of all beach.

Those little delicate pink ones are such a beautiful colour.

gorgeous colorful flowers.

Beautiful wildflowers can be equally well enjoyed without knowing all their man given names.

Leora says

I am just kicking myself because I asked the name of three wildflowers before I left, and I only remember 2 out of the 3! Somehow knowing their names is like knowing a person better; I feel more connected.
