I have these flowers growing in an area where I used to compost. It's a lovely flower, but I have no idea what it is. I live in Michigan. [url]https://www.pinterest.com/pin/245375879674670259/[/url]

To me it looks like it belongs in the morning glory family. Just a guess....

I second the morning glory family as well. The flower and the leaf seem to speak "morning glory".

Are the stamen attached to the base of the petals? They do look like morning glory stamen, although the anthers are really large.

I'm thinking a variety of nightshade. I have several different types that volunteer in my yard. The flowers are all different colors and shapes.
Tomatoes, potato, peppers, eggplant are all relatives to nightshade, so could also be some crazy wild potato plant.
