We have wild violets and an orange thing that is related to sunflowers (I used to know the name). Unfortunately, I'm not up on flower names - but I can tell you what kind of hot pepper it is that you are about to ingest.

Don't forget it's time to pick the morels! My girlfriend's mom picked a five gallon bucket full on their farm in Huddleston this week. Morels is some good eating if you like mushrooms!

I need to post a pic of the weeds in my backyard. I KNOW you'd be able to identify it. Looks rather like a geranium.
