Species Spotlight: Geranium Pyrenaicum

Original Posting (14 May, 2015) Otherwise known as common mallow.  I think I have correctly identified this plant but if anyone knows better I’m happy to be corrected!
EDIT (15 May, 2015): I have discovered that my first identification of this flower being malva sylvestris (common mallow) is most likely wrong…it is actually geranium pyrenaicum, or hedgerow cranesbill.  Either way, I think its a beautiful flower, they are surprisingly similar!
