    I think it's a wild mallow - malva sylvestris - but I can't see the leaves clearly

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    It's Musk Mallow (Malva moschata), a lovely wild flower I grow here.  :)
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
