How truly gorgeous this flower is! It is just one member of the mallow family and this one is a relative to the hibicus. Other relatives include the hollyhock. There are several of these plants growing along the wet weather creek. I think that only common mallow is classified as a weed. I thought it interesting that this one is snowy white and Shannon took a picture in the same group a few days earlier that was pink. They are providing an abundance of beauty without any help from me at all.
