Flags differ from hybrid iris -- they like wet feet.
There's a patch of hybrid iris along the road in the park. I speculate how they got there. Did someone (illegally) dump a load of garden dirt that included the iris rhizomes? There were houses in what is now the state park, but they were moved or torn down decades ago, so it's unlikely that these are a remnant from a flower bed.
Other wildflowers in bloom now are bladder campion (maiden's tears), coreopsis (tickseed), spiderwort, and ragwort. ("Wort" refers to a plant that was used for food or medicine.)
I made a Chinese Puzzle block in aqua/teal, the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for June. (And I've just had a flash of inspiration for setting them. Hope I remember it when all 10 blocks are made.)
I'm making this 20 x 30 wall hanging for the silent auction at our guild show this fall. I hope no one mistakes the squiggly pumpkin vines for snakes . . .
The pattern is from an issue of Quilt magazine.
The designer's vines are spikier. The magazine had the pattern half-size so I had to draw the pieces free-hand.

P.S. This was definitely not a wildflower! A half-dozen rose petals had blown down the beach. Wonder what the story is . . .
