I spotted these flowers beside my house. They have blown in from somewhere else. I like the distinctive look of the blossoms. Shot in the breeze. Ephemeral Virginia supplied by tataray.
A beautiful trio!

Now this is lucky having such beauty as nature gives choosing to settle closeby. A lovely image Don, but I can only admire not name

These flowers are not unknowns but "Dicentras" which we call collectively in France " Short-lived of Virginia " (Ephémères de Virginie). Lovely capture

Beautiful blossoms and rich colours. Flowers look really great against the dark background. A fine shot. :)

Excellent clarity along with gorgeous colors that really "pop" here!! The lighting reveals great texture as well within the petals.

They are sweet looking blossoms and the bee likes them, too.

Checked my handy Western Garden Book. I'm wondering if this could be the Spiderwort(Tradescantia) that is referred to as Tradescantia virginiana. The description matches but this picture is so much more beautiful than the pic in the book.

@Donna Proctor: Thanks for checking. The picture's colors are very close to accurate. I like the flowers whether I know what they are or not. :-)
Gorgeous light and color! These are just beautiful! Looks like the bee thinks so too!
