Default Name that flower... 5 pix

I've lived here over 4 years now and I never saw these bloom before.
Don't know why but, a lot of plants are doing better this year than in past ones but, I'm seeing less butterflies and other insects.
anyway, anybody know what this is called?

Yes, lovely!

Great shots # 1 & 5 are my favorites. A nice looking bloom whatever it is.

GW,
Those are great! I like the detail in the last shot. I think we have a different variety up here, but nothing like those that I've seen.

Hmmm, I wonder if I can find a way of working those into my Flaminco dancer photo.

OK GW - that's a throw down challenge - how about this?



This is more fun than shooting fireworks!
