Please Help Me Identify ...................................

I've been trying to i.d. this plant ,

but haven't been able to find out what it is.

The blooms are light lavender in color ,

It grows from a rosette of ovate leaves close to the ground.

It has many branches as it grows and leaves are toothed at the top ,

the main stem is hairy.
Can you help me identify it ?

Those are weird looking
blossoms. I don't know
what it is. What type of
scent does it have?

I looked up purple weeds
but it didn't come up. Nor
under herbs.

I wonder if Tansy would

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Is that two separate blossoms
together? Or is it one that
separtates in the middle? I
thought it look like one that
separates and it looked a bit

Hi Flassie ~ I think it's one bloom that's kinda separated , you can click on the photo to enlarge , maybe you can see it a little better. I had a very hard time getting a descent photo ,everytime I would take a photo , the blooms looked blurry.
