My husband and I have these growing in various spots around the edges of our yard. Neither of us are positive, but think they might be Texas Star? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Lovey dubby

Well, I just realized my picture wasn't as good as it should have been as I originally snapped it because I thought it was pretty. I will take a better picture today. I am sorry to those who have looked and thought I was crazy, lol. *Blush*

It looks like Texas Star
Texas Star (Sabatia campestris)

also, looks like a geranium (but that's usually not a wild flower)

There is a wild geranium that looks just like that.

I stand somewhat corrected, there are geranium wilds and it does have foliage resembling yours.

Wow you guys! Thank you for such a fast response and helping us outđź’•. We had been very curious about it. The foliage of the wild geranium does seem to be a match.
