Weather Flowers

I don't know what these pretty pink (we also have white ones, they started off pink and just turned white) flowers are called?
We call them weather flowers because when its sunny they open up
but when it is going to rain they close

  2. The flowers look like Oxalis (aka Wood Sorrel). They open and close depending on light like you observed. Here's a neat high speed video of my favorite - Purple Oxalis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLoIsXXediw
