It's pretty pink flower. I don't know the name either!

It looks like a cultivated form of Purslane to me, Beverly - closely related to Moss Roses/Portulaca. I have some in containers.

A summer with flowers and four babies sounds pretty wonderful!

A beautiful picture.
Annie knows best about why kind they are.
She is very smart about these things:)

I vote for portulaca also. One of my favorites. Best of all, they well reseed and come back next year. Enjoy!

Very brilliant colors. I would say portulaca too. I read somewhere that the leaves were edible and tried a piece. Yep, sour but not so mucilaginous and tastes pretty much like yucky common purslane.

I have this plant too and asked the same question - I forgot the name. Beth from Morning Glories helped me out.
