    I am using the attached flower images to create flower mandalas (see http://www.flowermandalas.org for my collection so far) and would appreciate help identifying them. I am, I'm afraid, hopelessly bad at identifying even the common garden flowers attached here and am grateful for your help.

    Best,
    David

    6. Looks like a Dahlia to me.

    On second thought that may be correct.
    A picture of the foliage would help greatly with these ID's

    Thanks for your help. Here's the full shot of #6, which shows a little of the foliage. Sorry, but the flower is in Seattle and I'm near Boston, and it didn't occur to me to shoot the foliage at the time.

    OK, #6 is definitely a Dahlia.

    Thanks for confirming. In the future (ie, next spring) I'll also take pictures of the whole plant when I don't know what I'm shooting.
