A Weekend of Woods and Wildflowers

I went for a hike this weekend at a nearby state park.
So many flowers in bloom!
I haven't identified these two yet:
I have found one of my new favorite wildflowers!
It's a Deptford Pink (Dianthus armeria). It's not native, but is naturalized. So delicate and vibrant! (See below)Mother nature is the best gardener! :)

The orange flower is Butterfly Weed, and the purple is Hairy Vetch. Not sure what the white/pink flower is based on the picture. - Aunt Kristi
