Malva Sylvestris

By iancrowson  
There are hundreds of these pretty little flowers growing in a nearby overgrown garden. The tiny stamens are like ice.
I don't know a name. there are numerous flowers about an inch across on each stem which grow about 2 feet high.
It is Malva Sylvestris, one of the Mallow family, thanks Lynne and Samar.
Thanks for looking,
