Wildflowers: Common Fleabane and Multiflora Rose

I thought the first flowers on my property were some sort of wild aster but found out they are common fleabane. Who knew? The multiflora roses are so fragrant this time of year. Walking among them yesterday was like being in a perfume factory. I honestly never knew they had such sweet tiny pink rosebuds.

I found a great site where you can search wildflowers by color with results shown in great photo galleries @ The Connecticut Botanical Society. I showed the photo gallery photos they provided as links under each of my photos. Hope this site helps you identify your wildflowers.

I now know what fleabane is, and I see quite a bit of it here :) Thanks for the link to search wildflowers, it's pretty neat.
