Unknown Beauty

This is another flower I don't know the name of. I want to say it's a type of rose, but I'm really not a horticulturist! These flowers were also prolific around the river at Rooks Park. Which, I guess, is not really a river, but a creek by name: Mill Creek. I just loved the delicate pink of these mostly white blooms.

Please tell me these posts are scheduled!! If this is a tall flower then I think it's hollyhock:

I agree with ceildequimper. In everything!

I think it's a variety of "tree mallow" rather than hollyhock. I grow hollyhock and don't think it's that.

It does look like a Hollyhock but if it is just growing wild it is probably a type of Mallow and there are many. MB

Whatever it is, it looks very delicate and paper-thin. It's amazing how God has created so many wonderful varieties of flowers and plants for us to enjoy.
