Wild Cala Lilies, wild flower bushes, and Water Lilies!

I am trying to learn all the wildflower names for the wildflowers 
that grow in our area.

I am not learning them as well or as fast as I wished!

Thank goodness for knowledgeable Bloggers who often help me name some of them...

So, let's see if we can find out some of them today, shall we?

I know these are yellow water lilies:

But this white flowering bush? Haven't a clue!: Anyone know??:

Also stumped on this one!: Help!!???:

Wild Cala Lily:

Another wild Cala Lily:

(I can't help myself. They are so tropical looking for way up north where we live!):

Wild rose:

Wild rose with a friend:

Another yellow water lily:

I have bought some reference books to learn about the different plants and flowers
natural to the U.P. of Michigan...
It is fun finding them, photographing them and then trying to find out what they are.

If anyone knows the names of the unknown flowering bushes I showed you above,
please let us know???

I don't know what the other flowers are called, either, but I know that I love the Cala lilies because they remind me of Georgia O'Keeffe, and the wild roses because the remind me of home!
