    Connie wants to know if anyone can identify these flowers. She can't find them in her book.

    Picture 3 is Cleome, a pretty flower that can grow 3 ft tall, and self-seeds freely.
    Sorry I can't ID the others, I'll leave that to someone else.

    2 is moss rose (we always called it rose moss)

    3 is cleome

    4 is a zinnia

    sorry, don't know the others.

    Zinnias come in fantastic colors and can take the summer heat. Save some of the spent flowers and you will have seeds for next year. Moss rose and Zinnias are annuals. I don't know about Cleome....
