 My wife planted seeds and bulbs in the flower bed earlier this year and I have three of the beautiful flowers, but I haven't got a clue what they are

It does look like something in that family. Can we havea look at the leaves and the whole plant terry (please)

Looks like the annual lavertera to me, yes the mallow family.

 I have 3 of these plants in my flower bed and they are between 2-3 ft high.. my wife is sure that these have come from bulbs she planted.

Wooh!  The lavetara usually grows much taller that 2-3ft!  I would say more like 6-8ft tall.  It's the cultivated version of the mallow weed.  Very nice in the right place!

Lavetera come in all sizes, shrubby, perennial and annual. This looks like one of the annual ones.

Mallow weed is Malva officinalis, same family, different genus

Yes, I think you're right Dove.

'Bout time - law of averages and all that

You're very often right Dove.
