MUSK MALLOW (MALVA MOSCHATA), GREEN, MICHIGAN, JULY 18, 2014
Tamron 90mm macro
1/750 sec. f8
At first I thought this might be a Wild Geranium, but the lobed petals and delicate, lavender-like scent bespoke Musk Mallow, a wildflower native to Europe, Turkey and southeast Asia and brought to America as an ornamental plant. Several specimens are growing by the side of the driveway to our cabin through the woods.
