wild flowers

My son has the assignment to gather 13 wild flowers and identify them. The assignment is due Tuesday. He is not ready. Here are some pictures of some wildflowers he collected in March.
Common Fleabane
False Garlic...I think. The picture is of False Garlic but the dried flower does not look quite like this. If you are going to dry flowers, identify them, label them, and THEN dry them. Ask me how I know! (Particularly if a 12 year old is flattening them to dry them...he didn't think to arrange the petals before drying...and neither did Dad.)
