Wildflower Wonderland: A Drive on 65

As promised, here are the wildflowers I encountered while driving on FL Hwy 65 towards Sumatra in the Apalachicola National Forest.  I included the common and scientific name in the caption (for all that I could identify).  You are welcome to share any of the pictures or use them as backgrounds.  Tomorrow, I’ll post the pictures of the longleaf pine forest.
