Globemallow are beginning to bloom, so I thought I would try to catch some.
 Each flower is cup-shaped. The color here is orange, but I have seen them run from reddish to blue-ish and also very light pink - nearly white.
 The inside of this one has three white pieces sticking up. I haven't seen that in others. Of course, it could be insect eggs or even tiny larvae.
 This shot shows the shape pretty well.
 And the leaves appear to be nettly in this shot, but really they are more what I would call wooly.
