Today's Flowers

It pays to read the instruction manual for your camera. I have discovered how to take really close close-ups with mine (ultra macro) which made a huge difference today. Of course, the fact that so many flowers were blooming was even better, so I went a bit berserk. Now to my trusty ID guide. The white flowers are Milkmaids (don't some of these have great names?).
This is, I think, a Showy Violet, but it's much more purple than the one in the book, so...
This one is easy because it's so distinctive. It's a Common Fringe Lily. For obvious reasons.
And this only blooms near the front gate, up the top end. This is a Blue Pincushion. There were quite a few daisies of all shapes and sizes, which I'll upload shortly.
