Roadside beauties....

We went for a drive this morn--I had the intentions of getting another picture that did not work out. Hopefully I can work on that another day. But I managed to capture these beauties. I do not know the name of any of them right now. I don't ever remember seeing the flowers in the top photo...

The red flower below I have seen before and I think I knew the name at one time but for the life of me I cannot remember it now. I have spent a fair amount of time looking at images on google, but so far no luck.

And I don't know the name of either of these. Does anyone else? I know I will spend more time searching but if you have a name, I would not mind hearing it.

Black cherry???

Not sure what this blooming tree is, but by the leaves and the bark I thought wild cherry or black cherry. I took these over in Edgar County, Illinois at this little graveyard....if the graveyard had a name I did not see it.
