Hi everyone!

I had this charming little wildflower spring up in my garden recently. I never planted it. A bird must have dropped it. It's a happy little wildflower that is blooming and brings a lot of cheer. I would love to know what it is? The color is wonderful and this little wildflower definitely makes sure not to get ignored.

Lobelia?

Is this a wildflower version of Regatta?

I think you might be right. I think it is a Lobelia erinus Monsoon

Just want to double check now. As the leaves are not green they are a redish brown tint!
