Can you, off hand, identify this wildflower?  This has suddenly appeared in our front yard, and I've never seen anything like it.  I figure someone here might be able to immediately recognize it.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

My guess , either columbine or periwinkle.. periwinkle if it has waxy leaves & is low to the ground , columbine if it is a climber.


 Edited a few min later : - neither No .. I've just looked at the Google Image for them .. they are totally different.

I think Georgia O'Keefe would have liked to paint that flower.

Embarassed  I have to say, after I saw this photo posted... I thought the exact same thing.

My first thought is some kind of legume.  How big is that flower. Can you pull back a bit so we can see the leaves?  Is it a vine?

Ah, Scorpio, I think you almost got it  Evidently it is a type of butterfly pea.  Your suggestion lead me to something similar.  I guess Marc was on to something when he mentioned Georgia O'Keefe:

Clitoria Mariana

Scorpio, I took the Centrosema Virginianum name and looked that up on Walter Reeves' website.  Someone thought a Centrosema specemin was actually a Clitoria Mariana.  In my case, that's exactly what it is.

Scorpio, wildflower.org even says that the two are often confused:

Ok folks, it's a family-oriented website...

A bit off the subject but will you please let me know what kind of camera you have?  Even pictures that I was taking this morning appear blurry on the camera screen.  I have a point and shoot Panasonic DMC FH 27.  Doesn't seem to be doing the job.  I couldn't help but notice how clear your wildflower picture is.

It's a Fujifilm Finepix water proof digital camera (ours is green).  Each picture is 3MB.  I only took the first picture, the second one is from a reference site.

Well, I have not really been noticing these because they are in a remote space I don't pay much attention to.  I just stepped out to check and I saw that there are eight faded blossoms and one fully open one. 

My wife just mentioned to me that she has seen this flower twice in other parts of our area (over the last day or so).   Our vine is getting long and it has several tendrils.  I'm hoping we will see some more flowers in the near future.
