This is a mystery flower from our backyard. Marian doesn’t remember what it is, and of course I never knew in the first place. But it’s certainly very colorful, isn’t it?

I was going to insert a joke here about how this must be a hardy variety of flower since it’s surviving our chilly 64º temps today, but I don’t have the heart. All of you in the Midwest take care of yourselves, OK?

UPDATE: It’s an African daisy, possibly the Pink Sugar variety.
