This flower randomly started growing in my front yard. It's about the size of a quarter.

My first guess would be a kind of primula but hard to tell without a pic of the whole plant

Serena, is it a bush? My first thought was Cynoglossum (Forget-Me-Nots), but I don't remember the flowers growing in the clumped form of your first picture...the second one looks more like it though. Check this link and see if that's your flower...

Flax, maybe? Linum perenne http://davesgarden.com/pf/go/260/index.html

Betcha that's it! Dale to the rescue! Serena - he's good, I'm sure that's gotta be it.
