Dragonfly Crafts' Blogging Sleepover Party is going strong. We're having a ton of fun and Fiona is a gracious hostess.
My hostess gift offering is a few flowers I found on vacation.
I bought this book at The Botanical Gardens at Asheville to help identify my flower discoveries.
I’m not sure that this is really categorized as a wildflower, but I thought this Lily at the Biltmore House Winery in Asheville was simply gorgeous.
This lovely butterfly posed prettily on daisies in the yard of the lake house where we were staying in North Carolina.
This Jack-in-the-Pulpit found in wooded area near the lake house is my very best find.
Mountain Laurel was everywhere.
Plant I found at Biltmore House Winery—I’ve no clue what it is, so I’ve named it “Scary Plant.” UPDATE: turns out this plant is called love-is-in-the-mist or Nigela, more information may be found here.

This small wild Iris was found in Asheville on the edge of a creek.
I bought this book from the two authors at their booth during the Fourth of July Weekend Craft Fair and Fundraiser Breakfast in Cashiers, N.C. They had a gorgeous quilt on exhibit which featured every one of their designs. I wish I’d photographed their quilt.
One author took the photographs and the other developed the cross-stitch charts. You can get a copy of this book at Catch the Spirit of Appalachia.
