Wildflowers at midsummer

Here are some of the magnificent wild flowers in my garden today (12 June 2016). Some of them are late to blossom due to more than a month of cold, wet weather, but often the buds are just as beautiful as the full blooms. Transylvania’s wildflower meadows are recognised more and more as one of the great treasures of Europe, and it’s vital to conserve them and appreciate them. Talking of appreciation, have I got the names right? I’m no botanist, so if you know better, please let me know and I can correct any mistakes.
