Is this a weed?

I had just given this the last rites and was about to dig it up but I thought I’d better check here first. Can you please identify it for me? Thanks.

    It might be Honesty? Lunaria Unnua

    My first thought was burdock.

    I'd say Honesty too Lunaria annua ... a pretty thing and very useful in the spring border ... lovely seedheads too.

    Thanks everyone. I should have identified is as honesty because it pops up all over the garden; this one is just outside the kitchen window and will look almost luminous in the half light of dusk.
