August 4th – Pretty impostor…

We have a weed in our lawn, but it’s pretty so we’re leaving it in. Not quite sure what it is, but plantsnap suggests that it maybe a common / dwarf mallow (Malva neglacta).

If it is this, then the plant is considered a weed, but is often consumed as food, especially the seeds which contain 21% protein and 15.2% fat.
