Early Summer Flowers

Is it summer or late spring?  It sure feels like summer here in the Bay Area.  Anyhow, Steve Kirks shot his azalea for me, so I thought I should send him some of my flowers.  I guess Tim Bray is too busy with his new job to take snapshots of his lawn.

I am rather embarrased to admit that I have no idea what this flower growing in my backyard is.  The tag got lost you see and my head being filled with essentials like Boo leaves little room for flower names other than simple ones like the rose and the sunflower.  It's the same with wine names so all I can manage is 'I'll have the, er, red.'
