While I'm staying with flower posts, these at least are wildflowers, and not cultivated garden flowers, so I can dubiously claim a little variety. The pale lavender in the background is wild bergamot or bee balm (Monarda fistulosa), a close relative to the cultivated Monarda didyma. The white is yarrow (Achillea millefolium). I don't remember whether the yellow is coneflower or St. John's Wort. Both were blooming in the area.
