Soft Centres

Just a few days ago, with a little bit of help from my friends (Thank you Mike) and a bit of expert confirmation we identified this lovely flower as Musk-mallow, Malva moschata. Cool 🙂

I have found a whole bunch of white ones.

I did wonder if the quarry had anything to do with the colour variants but, with this one at least, I am told that white is as common as pink, so no big mystery.

I do like a flower with a nice soft centre, don’t you?
