I sowed some wildflower seeds in the area this is growing but this does not match any of the plants listed in the wildflower mix. ???

The leaves have a clasping quality

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Is this a wildflower? It look like a zinnia to me.

That's what I thought Jay. But then I thought I must be mistaken b/c there weren't any zinnias in that wildflower mix. Maybe a gift from the birds or on an animals fur. I kept thinking zinnia; if you say zinnia then it's zinnia! Thanks Jay!

Jay has got it, and there are actually two zinnia flowers in your first photo. There's also a pink one to the left and a little down.

Thanks Lori. I didn't even notice that one.
