Arizona 'Cheeseweed' Mallow

Had to look this one up. I figured from the leaf it was some type of mallow.
The flowers have already dropped the petals and the fruit is developing.

 I guess the seed pods resemble a cheese wheel, hence the name.
The leaves are edible, but sometimes absorb nitrates from the ground and may not be so good for you.
