Oh I'm terrible at plant id. I'm going to take a wild guess and say it's a fragrant flower that blooms in early summer in the mid Atlantic Rolling on the floor laughing

Gardenia Jasminoides for sure. 'Kleim's Hardy' based on being single flowered and Mid Atlantic.

@ecnalg - she does have a magnolia looking bloom doesn't she?
@EvergreenMike - Hurray! yes, to Gardenia...not Kleim's Hardy though. Never could get those to live...and I tried multiple times. Sighing!

Answer: 'Shooting Star' Gardenia. I'll take a picture of her in her entirety tomorrow morning. Stay tuned for another 'what's my name'

Anybody else have a 'what's my name' to play?

Here's a full shot of shooting star in all her glory! I pruned her at the wrong time a couple of years ago and this is the first full flush that I've had since then. I cannot begin to describe the scent of my yard right now… I'm quite certain this is the fragrance of heaven!!

Here's a double what's my name.

Name the pink flowers. Bonus points for the bug sitting on the tip of the pink bloom. Enlarge to see! It's a cutie!

Oenethera jumped into my head.

I also guessed nicotiana and saw I was right. Okay, that is probably all I'll get right.

Chantell, so that's a dragonfly? It's so much smaller than most dragonflies I've seen. Is it just a juvenile or is it a different species?

Any guesses on the pink blooms?

Sally, don't prickly pear blooms usually have more petals? But the stamen part of the flower doesn't look like sun drops. Hm..
