I'm not sure what these are but they are so pretty.   They open up in the morning then close later in the day.   They come back every year and bring me enjoyment every time.

Vicky,

---

the flower you have there caused me to go and do some "research" on the web, so beautiful...

it either is a " morning glory " , a  "  Virginia spring beauty " or a " California poppy " as I just skimmed and didn´t peruse,  but if not one of these flowers, well at least does it belong to the family of these flowers...They mainly grow in North America, on the West Coast --among others--, and parts of Africa and indeed open in the day and close in the night, --this much from the web--...

But upon reading your post I remembered there was a flower in Germany and France --I guess sure everywhere in Europe too-- which is a kind of primrose and called in German " night candle -or- night shadow ", but this the translated name into English, and " l´onagre " in French, pronounciation: " lo naagr "  and unlike the beautiful flower you posted, sleeps in the day and shines in the night, probably hence the name " night candle " in German...The " night candle " that belongs to the family of the primrose came to Europe from North America between the 17th and 18th Century...

They call it " the Wonder of Mother Nature " ...

---stuff that sets one´s pen to paper, Vicky, thanks

sorry I said in my post above, they shine in the night, but meant " they open up " obviously. Even though...
