I think this plant is Pink fuzzybean (Strophostyles umbellata). Can anyone confirm? Thank You!

Definitely Strophostyles. S. umbellata and S. helvola look identical except for a bract subtending the calyx at the base of the flower. If you scroll down on this page you can see a picture of it.

S. umbellata is a perennial an S. helvola is an annual.

Thanks.
I could only find a few flowers in my garden and the photos are too blurry to see the necessary detail.
I'll take a walk around the neighborhood to see if I can get better shots of flowers; if not, I'll just have to add the photos to a generic Strophostyles in our database.
Thank You! plantladylin and Horntoad!
