Can you ID this Flower?

We have volunteer flowers in terra cotta pots. 4 different pots/same foliage, 1st one finally bloomed 3 days ago. We didn't plant them, we're original owners so unless someone snuck in the garden and did us a very kind favor. > we figure maybe flyby miracles via perfectly placed bird droppings is how they joined our garden family.
Is there a place to post a close up photo?
Thank you

If you don't get an answer here, try Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center - The University of Texas at Austin. I have their app and have had good luck.

Seeds fly with the wind, too.

Of course! Duh! That'll teach me to look at the title of a thread first, instead of thinking you just wanted to post pics...

Birds and squirrels drop seeds all over the place and it's always interesting to see what 'appears' in the yard each spring. This year I was amazed to find a Red Currant Tomato plant that is thriving and producing like crazy out in the rock garden! I couldn't find the plant this year, so I was so happy to see one of natures helpers gave me one.
