Day 515 – Common Mallow

Another pretty purple flower

We went for a walk by the canal this afternoon so that Caz could get her picture for the day. I was looking for nice purple things as usual, and came across this flower. Apparently it’s called Common Mallow, but I don’t think it’s common at all, it’s rather special, just like me! Caz’s book of wild flowers says that you can eat the leaves in a salad, but we decided to leave them on the flower.
