Evening friends. 

I have been amazed this summer so far by the flowers I find growing along the roadside.
I never used to pay much attention to them but a particular flower, actually this one

drew my attention to roadside wild flowers. (before i go any further...see the little bee).

I seen these growing along the roadside not far from my house and was intrigued to know what they were. My florist friend told me they were California poppies.
When I stopped to photograph the poppies ( I don't know why they were growing along the road either) I found many other flowers that I never knew existed.  So I guess it does pay to stop and smell the roses....so to speak. 

So I'm sharing some of the wildflowers that I never paid much attention too. 

Maybe you should look along the roadsides too.

I don't know the names of some of these, if you do, please let me know.

Viper's Bugloss....look at those thorns. btw this one is really a pest in some parts of the country. 

Some kind of vetch

And this is a crown vetch bloom

 I believe this is a queen anne's lace bud but don't know why its pink.
Unknown name....do you know?
