What is this Wild Flower?

Posted by MyLittleLife22 Washington State (My Page) on

I recently planted a huge bag of mixed wild flowers in my front yard and I of course threw the bag away and since it had been a good year or more since I even purchased the bag can't remember what the brand was.

Well, today I went out to check on them and this beautiful flower had grown! I really like it and would love to find out what it is. I tried doing a wild flower search on various web sites but, have come up empty handed.

Any help at all is appreciated! :o)
