    Looks like a Cranesbill (geranium). They come in many varieties so can't say which. They seed themselves and you can collect the new plants and move them to where you want them. When they finish flowering if you cut them back they may flower again later.

    Bloody Cranes bill?

    No - I'm not swearing! It looks like a type of hardy, native geranium, sometimes called Cranes Bills because the seed pods look like..... wait for it..... cranes bills!

    It looks a bit too dark for a bloody cranesbill, so it might be a sodding mouring widow

    Have a loo at these and see what you think

    Definitely some sort of cranesbill or native geranium. Don't know which variety (if they have seeded themselves it could even be a completely new variety)

    I've got cranesbills in all shades of pink from palest pink through to very dark purple - and in various shades of blue.
    This one just seeded itself in the path here. I suppose I should have it out of there.
