Update: Thank you to the readers who identified this as a tigridia or Mexican Shell Flower. Martin Král says that the tigridia, a bulb plant, comes from Mexico and is notable for the bloom, whose center often is spotted with various colors. Very attractive short sun-loving plant that winters over here. Highly recommended!

Original story:

Lee ran into this lovely pink creature on one of her daily walks. Lee doesn't know what it is and neither do I. If you do, please let us know and we will label accordingly. 

Otherwise, breath deeply and remember your blood pressure.

That is Tigridia - not sure about the spelling - AKA Tiger Flower.

I know them as a Mexica Shell flower. They are pretty hearty but the flower itself only lasts about a day.
