Today's Flowers

For Today's Flowers for this week, as well as last week, we were asked to post some pictures to do with Christmas. I looked around my collection and I just could not find any thing that fit. I rarely take pictures of anything that is not a part of nature and unfortunately there is not a lot of nature involved in Christmas, I looked for a reindeer but I could not find one.
So I decided to post flowers instead. It's funny but when I started posting on Today's lowers I did not really think that I had many flower pics to choose from but as I went back and looked I found that I had taken more flower pics then I realized.
I still do not have any idea what these are, if the past few weeks are any indication I am sure that I will get plenty of ID assistance, but I took these pics at Dodge Nature Center back on June 9th, 2008.

Interesting comment about the flower photos. We probably take photos of them not even realizing, just because of the scenic backdrop that they make.

It looks like wild Phlox but I can't guarantee it.
Lovely photos, can you remember if it had a perfume?

It does look similar to a phlox and it is a pretty flower, but it's dame's rocket (Hesperis matronalis), an invasive species. The easiest way to tell is phlox all have 5 petals, and dame's rocket has 4.
